5 thoughts on “Homers by Birthday

  1. Diane, have you ever considered utilizing your analytical talent for scouting? You would be great at psychometrics, a wonderful way to determine the behavioral and cognitive makeup of players and managers. I think you would find it fascinating!

  2. Number of homers equaling nth day of the year: for non-leap years, Bob Horner, 218 career HRs, born on 218th day of the year (Aug. 6); for leap years, Todd Zeile, 253 career HRs, born on 253rd day of the year (Sept. 9).

    Fun stat: Vernon Wells, the Dec. 8 HR leader, ended his career with 270 home runs and a 270 batting average. No other player has done that. (See NBJHBA, p. 825.)
