Career HR Leaders by Country | Research by Baseball Almanac, Inc.



Did you know that Baseball Almanac also has a comprehensive state-by-state breakdown for career home run leaders in our legendary lists section?
There are three players listed above in the 500 Home Runs Club , but through 2018, there is not one player in this set of research who has made it to the Hall of Fame . Who do you think will be first? Carlos Lee ? Albert Pujols ? Miguel Cabrera ?
A few of these players (Jeff Bronkey, Andre Rodgers, Brian Lesher, etcetera) are not only the career home run leader from their country, but they were also the first player in Major League history born in that country to make it to the majors!
