[edit] 700 Home Runs

700 home runs is the holy grail among home run hitters in baseball. There are currently only 3 players in MLB history who have hit 700 homers in their career (as of 2012). No player has ever hit 800 career home runs. Barry Bonds is currently the all-time leader with 762 home runs over his career. On July 13th, 1934, Babe Ruth became the charter member of the 700 home run club. The Babe was also the first American League player to hit 600 homers. Hank Aaron became the charter member of the 700 home run club for the National League on July 21st, 1973.
