Josh Donaldson is the newest member of the 500 Club.

The Blue Jays third baseman crushed a two-run home run on Tuesday, helping his team to a 6-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

The long ball was one of the most impressive ever hit at the home of the Blue Jays since it opened in 1989. The 435-foot homer sailed into 500 level of Rogers Centre, making Donaldson just the ninth Blue Jays player to ever hit a home run into the upper deck.

Overall, Donaldson is the 16th player to hit a 500-level blast, with Jose Canseco holding the ballpark record with three upper deck home runs.
