1996: Eddie Murray of the Baltimore Orioles hits his 500th career home run during a game against the Detroit Tigers. He was only the third person to have at least 3,000 hits and 500 home runs, although Rafael Palmeiro became the fourth on July 15, 2005. The other two are Hank Aaron and Willie Mays.
