The 500 Club

The 500 ClubBarry Bonds is working his way towards the very exclusive 700 Club and now stands at 676. Bonds is also one of four active players currently in the 500 Club now that Ken Griffey Jr. has joined. Griffey hit a 2-2 fastball from Matt Morris into the right-field stands to lead off the sixth inning Sunday, securing a spot in the record books as the 20th player with 500 homers.

The other active players with at least 500 homers are Sammy Sosa with 549 and Rafael Palmeiro with 538. Former Jay Fred McGriff only needs seven homers to become the 21st player to hit 500.

Until his past three injury plagued seasons, Griffey Jr. looked like a threat to join the 700 Club. It's still quite possible, but he'll have to stay healthy and carry a big stick.
