Tyrek stevens, a 36 year old 2B has finally hit his 300th career home run, his 7th on the season.

He overcame all odds to become the face of our franchise, with his inevitable retirement looming after the end of the season, the pirates will certainly miss his presence in the clubhouse. Congrats on no.300!!!!
