BALTIMORE, July 27 (UPI) -- Baltimore's Sammy Sosa moved into fifth place on baseball's all-time home run list Wednesday night when he hit No. 587 against Texas.

It was a treat for many Orioles' fans as Sosa bobble-head dolls were distributed to the first 25,000 fans 21 years and older who entered Camden Yards Wednesday night.

Sosa, 36, who passed Washington Manager and former Oriole Frank Robinson, is 73 homers shy of Willie Mays, who is fourth all-time with 660 homers. His home run Wednesday was his 13th of the season.
