Jim Thome

Jim Thome set an MLB record for most career walk-off home runs this evening, as his solo shot to left field won the Phillies' game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the bottom of the ninth inning. Thome has 13 career walk-offs after today's blast. Owning the record puts Thome in some fairly revered company. Besides Thome, five other players were tied with 12 career walk-offs before today: Jimmie Fox, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, and Frank Robinson.
