Willie McCovey Is A Valued Member Of The ‘500 Home Run Club’

Willie McCovey was a slugger.  And while he had some outstanding success as a hitter for average, it was his ability to hit the long-ball that drove Giants’ fans crazy.

McCovey crushed 40 or more home runs twice during his career.  And he hit 30 or more dingers an additional 5 times.  In total – 521 balls flew over outfield walls due to his mighty swing.

521 home runs is good for 18th place on the all-time list.  Not too shabby…
