The Sultan of Second City - Dick Caruso

Congratulations to Dick Caruso, our modern day Sultan of Second City, on hitting over 500 homeruns in his career! Here is a quick look at how he compares to the Babe.

Of course the pressure of reaching 500 homeruns was intense for Caruso. He even got heckled by some opposing team's fans. His teammates stood by his side and one Richmond Confederate even got the heckler back by autographing a souvenir ball with this special message. While it is not the 500th homerun ball hit by Caruso it may be a potential souvenir for the Second City Hall of Fame.
