Freddie Freeman had a career milestone on Saturday, as he smacked his 250th career home run in a 5-1 win against the Milwaukee Brewers. The homer came in the 2nd inning that scored him and Ehrie Adrianza.
The reigning NL MVP became the sixth player in Braves history to hit at least 250 HRs, and is sixth on the all time leader boards for the Braves. He needs 119 more homers to pass Andruw Jones for fifth all time.
Freeman has spent his entire 12 year MLB career with the Braves, and is a four time All Star, the 2020 NL MVP, and a Gold Glove Award winner. He also has a .293 career batting average with 1,553 hits.
