There’s an intense excitement you feel at a ballgame when you hear that resounding, yet unmistakable THWACK and you just know that ball is going out of the park!
I remember back in 1998 when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa were chasing Roger Maris’ legendary record of 61 home runs in a single season, with Mark McGwire emerging as the record holder with 70 home runs. He only held the title for three years before Barry Bonds broke it with 73 in 2001.
The excitement and energy watching your favorite team hit a home run is something else altogether, so we’ve put together a little infographic that puts the home runs of the 2016 MLB regular season into perspective.
Have a look, and enjoy!
