Ace of MLB Stats factoid:
"Ty Cobb (11) finished in the league top-10 in home runs more times than Mark McGwire (10) & Ken Griffey Jr. (9)."

"Miguel Cabrera blasted career home run #400 as the Tigers outlasted the Cardinals on Saturday. Cabrera's .320 batting average is the eighth-highest at the end of the game in which a player hit his 400th career home run among the 52 players who have reached that plateau, behind Babe Ruth (.349), Ted Williams (.349), Lou Gehrig (.345), Stan Musial (.340), Jimmie Foxx (.334), Albert Pujols (.333) and Vladimir Guerrero (.322)."
