Can you name the players with the most HR in a 2-year period?
Enter an answer (last names acceptable) in the box below
Correctly named answers will show up below
Answers do not have to be guessed in order
Divide "homers" by "% of total" (ie. 135/.232) to get their career total (thru 2009), might help if you're stuck. Max. 1 appearance on list.
Some players are active, but it's not marked just to add a little difficulty.

Adding the year instead of % of total would be really helpful and could really make this a publishable quiz.

Ralph Kiner is underrated
Jun 21st, 2010 at 07:11 GMT
yeah t % isn't really useful or helpful
Jun 21st, 2010 at 12:18 GMT
I disagree the percentage is very helpful as not many guys have had seasons in the 45+ HR range and not hit more then 300-400 HR
Jun 21st, 2010 at 13:17 GMT
And with a bit of math you can figure out how many total HRs the guy hit, which is a big clue. This is how I got my last 2. I think adding the year would make it too easy, % makes a better quiz.

I'm surprised that more people are getting Jimmie Foxx than David Ortiz.

This quiz is really easy... the first thing to notice is you have to have a 50-hr season to hit 100 in 2 years. That narrows your choices dramatically. Secondly, if ~100 is ~20% of their total, they're in the 500-hr club. So that should give you almost all of them. The rest are either active (and how many active players have hit 50 in a season?) or had short careers, which is really the only challenge.

^ Cranial flatulence. I forgot that at least one 50 HR season was essential (100/2). Missed Griffey, got Foxx.

Good quiz. Way too much time though

@emh: I'm not.
Jun 24th, 2010 at 17:07 GMT
I started to make a 3-yr Period quiz to fill the gap but it's essentially the same players as the other 2 so I'm leaving it alone... at any rate, an entirely new quiz is coming next week.

I hate to tell you this but Ruth did it 4x 20 - 54 21 - 59 = 113 26 - 47 27 - 60 = 107 27 - 60 28 - 54 = 114 28 - 54 29 - 46 = 100 Griffey did it 3x McGwire 3x Sosa 5x Bonds 2x
Jun 25th, 2010 at 01:40 GMT
pageup, your research is accurate, but I clearly stated at the top: "Max. 1 appearance on list."
Jun 26th, 2010 at 01:09 GMT
heh yeah, i missed that! slammin sammy = homeroids not home runs?
Jul 18th, 2010 at 20:29 GMT
