Dawson joins 300-300 club
As a member of the Boston Red Sox on April 15, 1993, Dawson hit his 400th career home run off of Cleveland Indians pitcher Jose Mesa. The milestone placed him alongside Mays as the only members of the 300-steal, 400-home run club at the time.
In 21 seasons, Dawson – an eight-time All-Star – tallied 2,774 hits, drove in 1,591 runs, smashed 438 home runs and stole 314 bases – despite undergoing multiple surgeries on his ailing knees. He also won eight Gold Glove Awards and four Silver Slugger Awards.
