    As far as I know, he is the only player with the exact same amount of homers per year for four consecutive years (minimum: 20 HR each year)
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

      Ken Boyer also did it from 1961 to 1964 (24 homers each year).

          Yep, Lynn did it from 1984-1987 (23 homers). He and Boyer are the only two to do it four years in a row.

          Harold Baines (20), David Justice (21), Travis Fryman (22), Al Kaline (27), and Hank Aaron (44) are the only others that have hit the same number of homer 4 times in their career (not necessarily consecutive).

          Nobody has hit the same number (minimum of 20) five times in their career. If you drop the minimum to 10 then Harold Baines (16) and Ed Kranepool (10) have done it 5 times in their careers.

            I just had Boyer, but nice catch with Fred Lynn.

            Another interesting tidbit:

            Benjie Molina

            2000 - AVG: .281
            HR: 14
            RBI: 71

            2003 - AVG: .281
            HR: 14
            RBI:71

            These two seasons were IDENTICAL in all three triple crown categories. I wonder if anything like that has happened before..

                    Dale Murphy was close
                    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.

                        True, but we generally look at only 3 digits.

                          Here are Castilla's numbers taken to four decimal places:
                          1996 0.3037
                          1997 0.3039

                          So he picked up the pace in 1997. Way to go, Vinnie!

                            That would explain his 2.8 million dollar raise for the 1998 season.
