TORONTO (AP) - Texas slugger Prince Fielder has joined his dad Cecil in the 300-homer club, making them the second father-son duo to reach the plateau along with Barry and Bobby Bonds.

Prince Fielder homered in the first inning of the Rangers game at the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.

Cecil Fielder hit 319 home runs in a 13-year career with Toronto, Detroit, New York, Anaheim and Cleveland.

Barry Bonds is the career home run leader with 762. Bobby Bonds connected 332 times in a 14-year career that ended in 1981.

With Friday’s homer, Prince Fielder moved into a tie with Chuck Klein for 137th on the career list.
