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…
