Fans pile in and out of ballparks throughout the year as they look for entertainment from the players on the field, and there's nothing more entertaining in baseball than a slugger who can send a ball into the stands on any given at-bat. How well do you know the greatest sluggers in baseball history? Can you recall the ones who slammed 50 home runs in a season? Here's a quiz where you can find out!
Before the live-ball era, which began in 1920, home runs were a rarity in the league as teams used a more unified approach to scoring runs. However, once the home run-era began, there was no looking back. Home runs were just too popular with fans, and batters learned there was a benefit in swinging for the fences, even if they struck out a few times.
Do you know these great batters who swung for the fences, from the first slugger to hit over 50 home runs in a season to the more recent stars in MLB? Are you going to be able to separate them from other great players who didn't quite make it to 50?
If you're ready to test your knowledge on MLB sluggers, get started with this quiz and see if you can knock it out of the park!
