Andre Dawson joins 400 home run club

The first 399 were hit in Candlestick Park, Wrigley Field, Chavez Ravine, the Astrodome and other National League outposts. The first 399 were hit when he was an everyday outfielder.

In the second inning of last night’s electric, 4-3, 13-inning Red Sox victory, Andre Dawson hit home run No. 400 while playing the new role of designated hitter. His 400th was his first as a DH, his first as an American Leaguer and his first in the direction of a Citgo sign.
