Twins Continue Track to Top MLB Home Run Record
The Minnesota Twins have already surpassed their single season franchise record for home runs, and are on target to shatter the all-time MLB season team record.
The previous franchise record was set by the 1963 Washington Senators (before moving to MN) when they belted 225 homers out of the park. This year's team sits at 252 on the season so far, with 32 games to go.
In 1997, the Seattle Mariners ended the season with 264 home runs -- an MLB record that stood for 21 years, before last season's New York Yankees hit three more than the '97 Mariners, ending the season with 267.
Following Sunday's game at Target Field against the Tigers, the 2019 Minnesota Twins have 252 home runs, and are on pace to obliterate last year's mark set by the Yankees, on pace to knock 314 over the fence.
The Twins visit the White Sox for a three game series beginning tonight in Chicago.
