500 Home Runs Club

Every Major League Baseball Player With 500+ Home Runs

The 500 Home Runs Club is a personal plateau and not an actual award given to any player. The passage of time has placed more significance on the attainment of this goal and memorabilia shows are often conducted and advertised using the term five-hundred home run member.

This is a truly an elite club of powerful sluggers that few belong to, and many only dream of coming near. Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the most comprehensive look at the 500 Home Runs Club found anywhere on the internet. Box scores of each historic 500th home run game, interesting fast facts and career breakdowns of every club member are included (bold denotes hall of fame member and italics are active during current season).

"Every time I sign a ball, and there must have been thousands, I thank my luck that I wasn't born Coveleski, or Wambsganss or Peckinpaugh." - 500 Home Runs Club Member Mel Ott
