    Home run leaders of the '20s and '30s

    Hey folks. I was wondering if anyone has the list for the top 15 leaders or so of total home runs in the '20s and '30s. For example, Ruth led the 1920s with 467, followed by Joe with X, then Bill with Y, etc. Anything is appreciated.

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.-Crash Davis

    You are worried about that when we have people here who won't do their own homework... and we have more than one person here who will do it for them?

    It's madness. By the way, I contacted Lee Sinnis, and he said his baseball encyclopedia (which is perfect for making lists like these) won't be available for the MAC, probably ever.
