1Hey Coach,
What baseball player has the most homeruns? Where does my favorite player, Alex Rodriguez, stand?

Hey arod-rules-nyy-13

Thanks for your homerun hitting questions. At the start of the 2006 season, the all-time homeruns leader is baseball legend Hank Aaron, who slugged 755 dingers over 23 seasons. The great Babe Ruth is second on the list with 714 and Barry Bonds, who is the active leader in career homers, is third on the list with 708. Bonds will probably pass Babe Ruth sometime during the 2006 season but it's unlikely he'll pass Aaron. Bonds is now 41, he's had several recent knee injuries and his hitting is now under a spotlight because of accusations he's been injesting steroids like candy for the past several seasons. These are all factors which should prevent Bonds from breaking Aaron's homerun record.

As for your favorite player, Alex Rodriguez, he started the 2006 season with 429 homeruns, which puts him in 36th place on the all time list. He was the youngest player in baseball history to hit 400 homeruns and if he stays healthy and keeps playing for the New York Yankees, there's a good chance A-Rod will pass Bonds, Ruth and Aaron to become the greatest homerun hitter of all time.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    Will Bonds Set a Homerun Record?

    • Yes - he'll pass Hank Aaron.
    • He'll pass Babe Ruth but won't beat Hank Aaron.
    • He won't even pass Ruth.
    • Who cares? He only hit all those homers because he's a roid monkey.
