Do you think you can hit a home run on this baseball quiz?
Until August 7, 2007, Hank Aaron held the record for Major League Baseball's all-time home runs. On that date, Barry Bonds surpassed Hammerin' Hank. Bonds currently holds the record with a whopping 762 home runs, leaving Aaron in the dust with an equally amazing 755 home runs. On the tails of these baseball greats is Babe Ruth - also a member of the 700 club with a respectable 714 home runs. The question is, with the retired Alex Rodriguez being the closest to The Bambino's record, with 696 home runs, will any baseball contemporaries be able to beat any of these baseball legends at their own game? And, if so, who and when do you predict will do the job?
The good news is that we you don't need to know how many home runs each player had - only the team he played for. So, if you know that Darryl Strawberry was a heavy hitter for the Mets, Johnny Bench batted for the Reds, and Mickey Mantle swatted for the Yankees, you're good to go.
