Before Kevin Millar was showing off his unique and outgoing personality on MLB Network, he was a 12-year MLB veteran. Across four teams, he finished with a .274/.358/.452 line and 170 career home runs.

But he just added an additional home run to his name on Saturday night.

Prior to his time in the Majors, he was a young kid who started his professional career in 1993 with the Saint Paul Saints, the preferred independent team of Bill Murray, and helped the franchise to its first championship that year.

Millar was reunited with the Saints 25 years after that championship season on Saturday for an anniversary game. During his at-bat he went deep to left field to put the team on the board.

As he crossed the plate, he even greeted teammates with personalized handshakes and the crowd cheered with excitement.

Looks like the 45-year-old's still got it.

Millar discussed his prodigious homer during a video call to Chris Rose and Sean Casey on "Intentional Talk" on Monday:
