Club with a home run when, in the sixth inning, he went deep off Indians pitcher Chris
Haney at Tropicana Field, August 7, 1999. The home run was Boggs' third hit of the evening
and only his second four-bagger of the year. Boggs' historic hit capped off a weekend in
which a flurry of baseball career milestones were reached: Mark McGwire hit his 500th home
run (August 5), Tony Gwynn collected his 3,000th hit (August 6), Albert Belle garnered his
1,500th hit (August 6), and Frank Thomas blasted his 300th home run (August 7).
