Join Baseball Almanac as we take a look at every letter in the alphabet and share the research.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Someday, somebody will hit 763 home runs in a career and pass Barry Bonds . We will definitely pay attention to that home run, and to at least the few dozen or so that precede it, knowing that each one is 1/763rd of an unprecedented achievement. But most of those 763 will occur in the dull everyday. You will not be able to recall them, let alone describe them in full color for your grandchildren. That's the price we pay for being realistic." - ESPN Analyst Sam Miller (06/22/2017, What if Cody Bellinger is going to hit 763 home runs and we just don't know it yet? , Source )
