Monday night was a night of milestones in the MLB world. Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, and Joey Votto each added onto their resumes. Trout hit his 1,000th career hit on his birthday. Harper hit his 150th Home Run of his career, while Votto became the home run record holder at Great America Ballpark. These three players also share a common trait as they have played their entire careers with their respective teams.

Trout hits milestone for birthday present

On his 26th birthday, Trout hit a double to collect his 1,000th career hit. The two time Most Valuable Player has had a storied career even though he has not entered the prime of his career. Trout added his 23rd long ball of his career as well. Believe it or not, this is not the first time Trout has homered on his birthday. This is the fourth time that he has done so, hitting a long ball in 2012, 2013, and 2015.

Trout joins Mel Ott, Jimmie Fox, and Mickie Mantle as the players to hit 1,000 hits, score 500 runs, and walk 500 times. Trout's next milestone is his career RBI total. Trout has a total of 548 career runs batted in. He could get that milestone this week.

Harper hits milestone home run

Harper collected his 150th career home run in a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins. Harper becomes the 24th player to hit his 150th career homer before the age 25th birthday.

The reigning Most Valuable Player in the National League could record another MVP award as he is hitting .326 and 81 runs batted in. As young as he is, expect another milestone in the home run total very soon.

Harper is enjoying another successful season. The Washington Nationals are 66-44 with a 14.0 game lead in the National League East Division. Harper is coming up on another milestone this season. He currently has 777 career hits and could get to career number 800 this month.

Votto is all time leader at Great American Ballpark

Votto slugged his 136th career home run at Great American Ballpark to become the club's leading home run leader at the stadium in Cincinnati. This happened to be his 30th home run of the season. Votto recently hit a milestone when he slugged his 250th career home run. Votto is 33 years old and has spent his entire 11-year career with the Reds.

Votto hit the home run in an 11-3 win over the San Diego Padres.

Votto's career 251 Home Runs have him tied for fifth in franchise history. He ties Ted Kluszewski on the list. Votto could finish his career as the best slugger in team history. The Reds leader in home runs is Johnny Bench with 389 home runs.
