Yeah I agree that if anything is an important enough milestone to stop the game, this is one of them.

But I don't agree with the entire idea of stopping a game to celebrate a milestone. How many guys hit 599 HR? How about 598? Or 604? That said, he's a classy guy and I'm sure that's exactly how he wanted to spend that moment.
