Chasing Piazza/Green/McGwire on June 26th

Cody Bellinger continues to make a mockery of baseball blasting two more home runs yesterday.  He’s now almost a month a head of the Shawn Green pace of 49 home runs which is the all-time Dodger home run record.

As promised, I’ve added the Mark McGwire rookie season to see how Cody is doing on that pace. Big Mac hit 49 home runs to set the all-time rookie home run record way back in 1987.  Cody is currently a head of the pace, but it will change in two days. McGwire had 22 home runs on June 25th, would not play on June 26th, but would hit three home runs on June 27th.

Cody has his work cut out for him.

Player Year PA HR HR/PA Total HR Thru June 25th Total
Mike Piazza 1993 438 24 18.25 15 35
Joc Pederson 2015 497 24 20.71 19 26
Corey Seager 2016 584 24 24.33 16 26
Shawn Green 2001 422 24 17.58 18 49
Mark McGwire 1987 262 24 10.92 22 49
Cody Bellinger 2017 240 24 10.00 24 ???


If this confusing here is a quick legend.

PA – this is the number of plate appearances it took for each player to reach 24 home runs. We used 24 home runs because that is where Bellinger is right now. This would be within 4 PA of accuracy as I didn’t check the game log for the specific plate appearance they hit the home run.

HR – This is a marker showing you 24 home runs.

HR/PA – this is the home runs per plate appearance pace when they each hit their 24th home run.

Total HR by June 25th – self-explanatory but it includes games of June 25th

Total – season home run total

    A Bellinger side note.

    As the temps increase.
    The baseball is warmer
    And the ball travels farther in the hot humid air …
