1 – BABE RUTH

And finally, number one on the list of top home run hitters of all time is Babe Ruth. George Herman Ruth Jr. had a professional baseball career that spread over 22 seasons and saw accomplishments of all kinds. The left-handed hitter played for the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, one season with the Boston Braves, and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its inaugural members.

Ruth hit a remarkable 714 home runs during his career and was the American League home run leader twelve times—all this during a time when the home run was not so run of the mill. His 714 home runs currently put him third on the list of all time behind Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds.
