Harold Baines hit is 384th career home run 14 years ago, which turned out to be his final one. Luckily for Chicago fans it came in a White Sox uniform.

The first pick of the 1977 amateur draft, Baines was a great hitter for the Chicago White Sox and gave them 14 of his 22 years in baseball, including his final one in 2001.

The left-handed hitter had his number 3 retired in 1989 by the Sox and has a statue in the right field concourse that was unveiled in 2008.

He ranks among several of the top 10 in franchise offensive categories for the White Sox including:

  • Intentional Walks: 107 (2nd)
  • Home Runs: 221 (3rd)
