Ryan Howard Makes History: Fastest Ever to Reach 200 Homers

Jul 16, 2009, 10:09 PM EDT

On a night when Jamie Moyer once again mastered the Marlins, this time with seven innings of one-hit, shutout ball, and Raul Ibanez got his second half started with not one but two bangs, Ryan Howard stole the show. The Big Guy mashed his 200th career homer, hitting that mark in just his 658th game—the fastest any Major League player has ever reached 200. 

Howard is a rare power talent, and Phils fans continue to be treated to a historic performance.
