Generational Home Run Hitters.

2020-04-07

Three players in Major League Baseball history have hit over 700 career home runs.

  1. Barry Bonds - 762, last home run hit August 7th, 2007.
  2. Hank Arron - 755, last home run hit July 20th, 1976.
  3. Babe ruth - 714, last home run hit May 25th, 1935.

In terms of all-time records, I like to think of the Home Run Crown as "generational." It's not impossible to take down, but appears to happen once a generation. And based on current home run standings, we'll have to wait at least another 20 years to see someone try!
