This is the only list I was able to find.


If you make every game a life-and-death thing, you're going to have problems. You'll be dead a lot. Dean Smith

If you count players who hit homers in both leagues but more in the AL, the list is as follows: 1. Ruth 2. A-Rod 3. Killebrew 4.  Reggie J. 5. Palmeiro 6.  Manny R. 7.  Foxx  8.  Ted Williams  9.  Eddie Murray  10.  The Mick   I might be wrong though.

Here's the official list (as of Thome's 500th; he has a few more now).


Remember:  these are the numbers each guy hit while he was playing on an American League team only:


1.  Babe Ruth                 708

2.  Alex Rodriguez        626*             (he could possibly pass The Babe, if he recovers from knee surgery)

3.  Harmon Killebrew    573

4.  Reggie Jackson       563              

5.  Rafael Palmeiro       544*

6.  Mickey Mantle            536

7.  Jimmie Foxx              524

8.  Ted Williams             521

8.  Frank Thomas          521

10.  Manny Ramirez      511*

11.  Jim Thome             500


* = steroid assisted?


bold = still active players
