  • 4th Greatest Home Run Hitter

    Mickey Mantle took 6 of 29 votes to take the number three spot. Congratulations to The Mick.

    I'm going to keep the next poll open a little longer to account for there being less activity on the weekend. Again, discussion and nominations are welcomed.

    Here are the home/road splits for the 500 home run club members. If anyone has questions about players who are not members, ask me and I can probably find the info.

        Griffey. IF he had stayed fit he could have been up there in the 700-club, and he didnt need steroids to do it. As it is, if he plays the next season ok he'll join the 600 club and overtake Sosa. If he had played in any other era than the 90's he would often be talked about as one of the greatest hitters ever.

            I agree that Gibson was the best negro league hitter, but you have to put his stats in contest. Many of his home runs were hit against semi-professional teams, and many stats on his power numbers and averages are only good estimates.In reality i think he wopuld have been a solid HR hitter if he played his career in the MLB, but not up there with the other "greatest home run hitters" being voted for in these threads. Maybe im wrong, but thats just my view.

              Not including Negro Leaguers and suspected steroid abusers, I feel very much inclined to vote for Killer--Harmon Killebrew, that is.
