Hot corner

June 11, 1999

Quote: "The Bronx Bombers proved themselves to be America's greatest team. I'm awful glad [Joe DiMaggio] was able to see one last great Yankees season." -- President Clinton, who honored the '98 World Series champion Yankees at the White House yesterday.

It's a fact: Ken Griffey's 487-foot, bases-empty homer in the fourth inning of Wednesday's 16-11 Mariners loss to the Rockies was the sixth longest in the history of Coors Field.

Who's hot: Mark McGwire's 19th homer in Wednesday's loss in Kansas City was the 476th of his career, moving him past Willie Stargell and Stan Musial into 16th place on the all-time list.

Who's not: The Indians' Bartolo Colon allowed eight hits and six runs in a season-low three innings against the Brewers last night to remain winless since May 17.

On deck: The White Sox's Frank Thomas is just one double shy of 300 for his career, nine homers short of 300 and 14 hits away from 1,500.
