400 HR With One Team

White Sox 1B Paul Konerko has been on fire the last few weeks, having one of the best stretches of his entire career. He's made himself a viable American League MVP candidate. Sunday afternoon, Konerko connected on the 407th home run of his career, tying him with Duke Snider for 47th on the all-time list. More notably, the home run was also the 400th of Konerko’s career as a member of the White Sox (it is often forgotten that Konerko actually played briefly for both the Dodgers and Reds before joining the White Sox). Hitting 400 home runs with one franchise is a rare feat; Konerko became just the 24 player in history to accomplish it.

Over at Southside Showdown, I took a look at the players who've joined this select group, I think it's worth a look.
