Re: Analysis of top and potential career homerun leaders
The early Ruth stats are skewed too, in that he was also a pitcher during that time. His AB's didn't start to get up there until 1918, his 4th year in Boston.
As to have some of the most prolific home run hitters, that is true. But Aaron's era saw a considerable number too - Mantle, Mays, F. Robinson to name just three of the leaders. And Aaron's teammates were among the most prolific combination of power hitters, both in Milwaukee and Atlanta. Of course, Ruth was surrounded with some pretty fair hitters too.
