Paul Konerko's first career home run came on June 6, 1998 at the Kingdome off Seattle's Bob Wells. It took him four years to hit his next milestone blast, with that coming off Atlanta's Kerry Lightenberg at Turner Field in June of 2002 (a month in which he had four multi-homer games).

No. 200 came three years later off Tim Wakefield in Boston, just a few months before the White Sox won the World Series. His 300th was more memorable for what happened before it, as Konerko and Jermaine Dye became the first teammates in history to hit their 300th home runs in back-to-back at-bats.

And then No. 400 came yesterday off Oakland's Grant Balfour. Interestingly enough, none of these milestone homers have come on the South Side, although the biggest one of his career -- Game 2's grand slam -- happened at U.S. Cellular Field.

MLB.com put together a highlight reel of Konerko's biggest home runs. Enjoy:
