Interesting how home ballparks figure into it. If Mays played in the parks Aaron played in he'd have 755 or more, rather playing in the Polo Grounds and The Stick. A-Rod, Griffey, Sosa, Palmeiro, Jackson, Man Ram played in a bandbox. Ruth started in Fenway for a few years, when the Rightfield Grandstands went way back, moved to the Polo Grounds while Yankee Stadium was being built and finished in Yankee Stadium. Ruth's power, like Mays, was to the alleys. A-Rod played in the kingdome and in Arlington before going to the bombers. We know about Griffey, who never had to play in Riverfront, I believe. Robinson played in the old big barn in Baltimore and at Riverfront. Killebrew played in the big joint. Palmeiro played mostly in Texas. Jackson started in Oakland, before the remodel, went to Yankee Stadium and then the Big A. Schmidt played in a big park his whole career.
Bonds played in big parks (The Stick, Three Rivers, and PNB) but had some help.
The most immpressive are Ruth, Mays, Thome, Killebrew, Jackson, Schmidt and Mantle, IMHO.
