All Time Greatest Home Run Hitters

Steroid suspicion or not, they gave us some memorable moments.

The Top Ten

1 Babe Ruth Babe Ruth George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.


No steroids and he pitched for a few seasons not as many at bats.

Hank Aaron played way longer he had way more at bats and only had 41 more homeruns - shoobs

Really great baseball player. He was always my idol in baseball. - jasonfoxrox

2 Hank Aaron Hank Aaron Henry Louis Aaron, nicknamed "Hammer" or "Hammerin' Hank", is a retired American Major League Baseball right fielder who serves as the senior vice president of the Atlanta Braves.

Hank Aaron still has the all time home run leader in my book. Using steroids is a way of cheating the game of baseball. And cheating like in everything else gets you disqualified

Awesome, Would of had the most home runs if Barry Bonds would have not took the steroids

The all-time home run leader, minus steriods. - nevaehotyawriats

He was a good guy and showed it on the ballfieild

3 Barry Bonds Barry Bonds Barry Lamar Bonds is an American former professional baseball left fielder who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants.

Most career home runs

Drop the steroids, and you still got Hall of Fame stats.

Never pick up the steroids, and you'd get Hall of Fame votes.

4 Willie Mays Willie Mays Willie Howard Mays, Jr., nicknamed "The Say Hey Kid", is an American former Major League Baseball center fielder who spent almost all of his 22-season career playing for the New York/San Francisco Giants, before finishing with the New York Mets.

Willie Mays would have had more homers if he hadn't served in the army for two of his prime years, and if he hadn't played his home games in unusually spacious ballparks. - 5ToolPlayers

5 Ken Griffey Jr. Ken Griffey Jr. George Kenneth Griffey Jr. nicknamed "Junior" and "The Kid", is an American former professional baseball outfielder who played 22 years in Major League Baseball.

Best swing ever! So natural

Only player from the steroid era who didn't cheat. Also with all his injuries, he likely could have had the most home runs all time if he was more healthy. Very underrated and unappreciated due to the cheaters like Bonds, Rodriguez, and McGuire.

Ken had the sweetest swing in baseball. - Jman2021

6 Alex Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez, nicknamed "A-Rod", is an American former professional baseball shortstop and third baseman. He played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and New York Yankees.

Pretty good at cheating. Only got caught and suspended 3 times. - 5ToolPlayers

Pretty good shortstop but took steroids


7 Mickey Mantle

No steroids. Played with injuries. Class, just like Maris

8 Reggie Jackson Reggie Jackson Reginald Martinez Jackson is an American former professional baseball right fielder who played 21 seasons for the Kansas City / Oakland Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and California Angels of Major League Baseball.

He didn't just hit homers...he hit CLUTCH homers. By the way, y is JIM THOME on this list!!! Sosa and McGwire aren't even in the top ten - 3anegroes

9 Chris Davis

53 in one year - RedsHansen7

10 Frank Thomas

He intimated his opponents by swinging an iron rod on the on deck circle he found at the wreckage of Old Comiskey Park - crazyeyes56

The Contenders

Big Mac hit Em farther than anyone

Steroids or not the man could hit it to the moon

12 Jim Thome

One of the greats

13 Frank Robinson

He hit the second longest homerun EVER.580 feet

14 Ted Williams
15 Josh Gibson

He should be at least in the top 10-12 because he nearly smacked 800 homeruns

He was known as the black babe Ruth, and rightfully so. He was said as hitting 74 home runs in one season. He was a pure power hitter - Jman2021

16 Giancarlo Stanton Giancarlo Stanton

Totally. If he does't get injured, he has a good chance at 600

Best power hitter of all time. most potential out of every man on this list.

18 George Brett
19 Evan Longoria
