Goodbye bullets: 13 Tommy in history, 12 Pujols in active duty

On December 27, Japan time, Jason Catania, a reporter on the official Major League Baseball website, published a special article introducing the top 10 home runs in total. Jim Tommy, who hit the most good-bye home runs in the history of majors, recorded a total of 612 home runs and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the first year of qualification in 2018. Six people are lined up in second place, one behind, but five of them are Hall of Fame batters and the only active player, Albert Pujols, five years after his retirement, in his first year of qualification. It is definitely seen as being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Tommy has been active in 6 teams including Indians for a total of 22 years. He is the only player in history to hit a total of 500 home runs with a walk-off home run (September 16, 2007 during the White Sox era, a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Angels). There are eight good-bye home runs released in overtime, which is the highest number of ties in history along with Frank Robinson and Pujols. Among these eight are the 11-time walk-off home run that he hit on his own Bobblehead Day on April 21, 2001.

Six people, Jimmy Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial, Pujols, Robinson, and Babe Ruth, ranked in second place, one behind the top. Among them, the only musical (475 home runs) that has not achieved 500 home runs has a major record of 9 good-bye solo home runs. In addition, 12 mantles (Yankees) and Musials (Cardinals) are the most in history as goodbye home runs released by one team.

David Ortiz, Tony Perez, and Ryan Zimmerman are ranked in 8th place Thailand (11). In Perez, 11 out of 379 home runs are goodbye home runs, and 7 goodbye home runs from 2 outs are major records. By the way, 11th place Thailand is Dick Allen, Harold Baines, Barry Bonds, Adam Dunn, Jason Giambi, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, Sammy Sosa. The name of Bonds, who hit 762 home runs, the most in history, finally appears here.
