Homers by team for the 500+ homer hiters

by Bill Chuck on January 24, 2013

I was writing about Ken Griffey being inducted into the Mariners HOF and I wrote:   Griffey is sixth on the career home-run list with 630, with 417 with Seattle, the rest with the Reds.

Oops, my mistake, I forgot that Junior hit three with the White Sox in 2008.

Fortunately, one observant reader pointed out the error of my ways. And, I believe that from every error is an opportunity for another column, so it me got looking at the other “random” homers hit by baseball great sluggers.

Here are the 25 batters who have hit 500+ homers and the homers they hit for each team (not just each franchise)
