On This Day: August 24th

August 24, 2016

I hit the 30th home run of season, making me the oldest MLB player to do so.  Also, in that same game, I reached my 100th RBI for the season, marking it the 10th time in my career I reached both milestones.

I am just so blessed to have been able to play the game of baseball for so long and to have achieved all the records and be put in the same category as some of these legends of baseball is incredible. I went out there and just played my best my whole career up until the very last game, so to be recognized for the results of my hard work and dedication is great and I really want to thank the game of baseball for giving me such amazing opportunities in my life.
