2009 Chachi #50 Ryan Howard RB
In the sixth inning of tonight's game against the Marlins, Ryan Howard became the fastest player in Major League history to reach 200 career home runs. Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner needed 706 at-bats to reach the plateau, and it took Ryan only 658 at-bats. He hit the historic blast off Marlins' starting pitcher Chris Volstad.
