ANAHEIM, Calif. - Wednesday vs. Seattle, Chesapeake's Justin Upton became just the ninth active Major League Baseball player to reach the 300 career home run mark.

The former No. 1 overall pick from Great Bridge High School, playing his 14th season in the majors, is the 149th player in baseball history to reach the mark. “It was a special night,” Upton said via the AP. “I definitely wish we had gotten the win, but I enjoyed that moment.”

Upton was selected No. 1 overall in the 2005 MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
