Texas Rangers' Joey Gallo is fastest to 100 home runs in American League history

Texas Rangers slugger Joey Gallo made history on Wednesday by becoming the fastest player in American League history to hit 100 career home runs.

Gallo hit No. 100 during a day game in Pittsburgh that went 443 feet. Gallo hit the homer in his 377th career Major League Baseball game.

Gallo is third-fastest to 100 in MLB history, only behind Ryan Howard (325) and Ralph Kiner (376).

Gallo also is the first player in MLB history to reach 100 career homers before getting 100 career singles. He has only 93 singles as a player in the majors.

Gallo played in a handful of games for the Rangers in 2015 and 2016, but became a permanent member of the club’s roster beginning in 2017.
