Harold Baines

Why Harold Baines?

In a race that consists of 384 loops around the bases, the race directors have decided to pay tribute to the only player in the major leagues to hit 384 home runs (according to baseball-reference.com) – Harold Baines.

Throughout his 22 year career spanning 2,830 games, Baines hit his home runs playing for five different teams – including three separate stints with the Chicago White Sox.

Each year at the Sandlot Marathon, the overall winner will receive a Harold Baines baseball card (Note: Should another player hit 384 home runs in his career, they may be included as a potential award)
