The 2019 Minnesota Twins became the first team in MLB history to hit 300 home runs in a single season today when Jonathan Schoop homered in Detroit.

Schoop's home run cam in the seventh inning en route to a 10-4 matinee win over the Tigers to complete the three-game series sweep.

The previous single-season team home run record of 267 was set by last year's New York Yankees. This year's Yankees are right on the heels of the Twins, current sitting at 299 home runs this season.
