2007 Chachi #39 Ryan Howard RB

Looking back a few years, Ryan Howard also set the record as the fastest to reach the 100 home run mark, again breaking the record originally set by Ralph Kiner.

Ryan hit his 100th on June 27, 2007, against the Reds' Aaron Harang. The homer sailed over the brick batter's-eye wall in center field, bouncing in the Wall of Fame Area, and ultimately landing in Ashburn Alley. At the time (and I believe still), the 505-foot blast is the longest home run to date at Citizens Bank Park.
