Chasing Piazza / Robinson / Green / McGwire with number 29
With that blast tonight, Cody is still way in front of the Piazza pace, somewhat in front of the Frank Robinson pace, almost right on the Shawn Green pace, but still way behind the McGwire pace. Should be noted that since both Green and McGwire hit 49 home runs, Shawn Green would hit 19 home runs over the final two months compared to only 12 for McGwire.

f this confusing here is a quick legend.
PA – this is the number of plate appearances it took for each player to reach 29 home runs. We used 20 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 29 home runs.
HR/PA – this is the home runs per plate appearance pace when they each hit their 29th home run.
Total HR through August 1st
Total – season home run total
Leader – this is why they are on the list. For example Mike Piazza is the LAD Rookie Home Run Leader
Year – this is the year they accomplished the home run record that Cody Bellinger is chasing
