Most Seasons With 60, 50, 40, 30, 20 or 10 Home Runs

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a record book for most seasons with 60 home runs, 50 home runs, 40 home runs, 30 home runs, 20 home runs, 10 home runs, and a single home run by Baseball Almanac.

NOTES: Record holders are listed in descending order. Ties for same number of seasons are alphabetized. Team data and league data (ML if they have more than one type of quantatitive season from each league) are displayed just for informational purposes.

"'If I get there (60 home run club), I get there,' ( Ryan ) Howard said. 'I'm not going to worry about that stuff. Obviously, I'd like a chance [to hit in crucial] spots, but if they won't pitch to me, someone else can get the job done.' Hitting 60 home runs is arguably the most difficult of the individual accomplishments, considering only five players have done it, and those five combined to do it eight times." - Sportswriter Ken Mandel on MLB.com (02/09/07, Will anyone hit 60 home runs? i>, Source )

Most Seasons With xx Home Runs



Did you know that Sammy Sosa , who was born in the Dominican Republic , was the first slugger in Major League history from outside of the United States to hit 50-or-more home runs during a single season?

Sixty, fifty, forty, thirty, twenty, ten, they are listed above, but what about the players who have simply hit at least one home run in more seasons than than anyone else? Here is an amazing list of players who have hit at least one home run in twenty-two or more Major League seasons:

On July 31, 1997, Mark McGwire was traded from the Oakland Athletics to the St. Louis Cardinals . He hit 34 and 24 home runs respectively making him the first and only player with at least fifty home runs in a season to do so while playing for two teams and the first and only to do so while playing in both leagues.
