    2. Ryan Howard, 2007 - 353
    3. Adam Dunn, 2004 - 349
    4. Ryan Howard, 2006 - 347
    5. Adam Dunn, 2006 - 345
    6. Jim Thome, 2001 - 345
    7. Barry Bonds, 2001 - 343
    8. Jack Cust, 2008 - 341
    9. Jim Thome, 2003 - 340
    10. Mark McGwire, 1999 - 339
    11. Sammy Sosa, 2001 - 333
    12T. Jim Thome, 1999 - 331
    12T. Adam Dunn, 2009 - 331
    14. Ryan Howard, 2008 - 328
    15T. Jim Thome, 2000 - 326
    15T. Adam Dunn, 2008 - 326
    17. Adam Dunn, 2002 - 324
    18. Adam Dunn, 2005 - 322
    19. Mike Schmidt, 1975 - 319
    20T. Barry Bonds, 2004 - 318
    20T. Mark McGwire, 1997 - 318
    20T. Jeff Bagwell, 1999 - 318

    As of today, Adam Dunn is sitting at 290, so he's very likely to once again break into this list for the 7th time. Considering it's dominated by players in the 2000s, it kind of shows the approach some of these hitters are now taking as compared to the past.
    Now at 305 after another 2 HR's so far today. He is nearly hitting .500 this season with a BA barely over .200!!!

    You're absolutely right. Mick did do it in '58, so the AL record goes back 54 years. Good call!

    It's only been done once across both league's so far with Ruth being the sole person.

    It's been done a total of 7 times so far as so far as leading the NL or AL separately with Ruth doing it 4x ('23, '24, '27 & '28), Hack Wilson in '30, Mike Schmidt in '83 & Dale Murphy in '85.

    So leading a league in all three hasn't been since '85, but even if somebody from the NL tops Dunn in a category this year, he'll still go back to Ruth's 1928 season.

    Looks like Mike Schmidt did do it in 1983. He led the league in walks, strikeouts and homeruns.

    He probably didn't lead the Majors though thinking about it now. Ron Kittle had 2 more strikeouts than Schmidt.

    EDIT - Looks like Mantle led the AL in all three categories in 1958, but Ernie Banks in the NL had more home runs.

    started a topic Adam Dunn and Babe Ruth

    Adam Dunn and Babe Ruth

    Not sure if this has been posted, but I couldn't find it via search.

    As it stands today, Adam Dunn leads all of baseball with 34 HR, 84 BB and 170 Ks. The last player to have done that was Babe Ruth in 1927 - 85 years ago. Even though nobody like to be associated with the most strikeouts, I'd find it pretty awesome in saying "only the Babe and I have ever..." if I were a player.
