A six-time All-Star, Baines led the AL in slugging percentage in 1984. He held the White Sox team record for career home runs from 1987 until Carlton Fisk passed him in 1990; his eventual total of 221 remains the club record for left-handed hitters, as do his 981 RBI and 585 extra base hits with the team. His 1,652 games as a designated hitter are a major league record, and he held the mark for career home runs as a DH (236) until Edgar Martínez passed him in 2004. He also led the Major Leagues in hits as a DH (1,688) until the mark was surpassed by David Ortiz on July 10, 2013. Baines was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on December 9, 2018, by the Today's Game Era Committee.
