    Since the days of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa battling for the single season home-run record, Major League Baseball has seen a resurgence of dominant pitching. Pitchers are developed from a young age and put through rigorous daily routine. The mechanics, speed and endurance exhibited from the mound are all second to none in today’s era, making pitchers stronger than ever. That being said, hitting a Major League home run is somewhat of a difficult task. Going even beyond that; hitting 400 career home runs in next to impossible. Don’t tell that to the Boston Red Sox’s David Ortiz. Big Papi hit his 400th career home run during a day game on July 4th in Oakland, making him a part of Major League history.
