Ortiz is the 49th player in history with 400 and one of eight active players. Two players have hit their 400th home runs this season, Ortiz and Paul Konerko of the White Sox. Both milestone shots came in Oakland. Konerko hit his April 25 off Grant Balfour.

Ortiz joined Red Sox Hall of Famers Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski in hitting their 400th homers against the Athletics.

Williams hit his July 17, 1956, against the Kansas City Athletics at Fenway Park. Yastrzemski hit his July 24, 1979, against the Oakland Athletics, also at Fenway.

Another Sox Hall of Famer, Jimmie Foxx, hit his 500th home run Sept. 24, 1940, against the Philadelphia As.Boston Globe
