Trivia

  • Kent is the all-time leader in home runs as a second baseman (365 as of the end of the 2007 season).
  • He hit his 288th home run as a second baseman on October 2, 2004, surpassing Ryne Sandberg as the all-time home run leader at that position
  • He is also the only second baseman to have 100 or more RBIs in 6 consecutive seasons (1997–2002).
  • The Giants' front office had lost confidence in Kent after an incident during spring training that left him with a broken wrist. Kent had initially claimed that the wrist was broken while washing his truck; ensuing media reports indicated that Kent had crashed his motorcycle while doing wheelies, in violation of his contract.
  • He is often mistaken for Jeff Foxworthy.
