In 2019-2020, the MLB home run race has been one of the most exciting ones yet with a big rookie in the lead and 3 all stars cashing him. This year’s home run race is going to be one to remember.

Pete Alonso is in the lead with 47 home runs; this power rookie is an absolute beast, crushing the ball all year, showing up everyone and every team that he plays.

Mike Trout is an all star in the Majors and has won two MVP awards and is going for his 3rd this season. Mike Trout sits at 45, right behind Pete Alonso, and is looking to catch him coming up to the postseason.

The other two all stars are Cody Bellinger and last year MVP Christian Yelich. Cody Bellinger is on the hottest team in baseball, sitting at 44 home runs, and is looking to take his team to the world series and win. Sadder news for Christian Yelich is that he suffers a knee injury and will now be out for the rest of the season.

Pete, Mike, and Cody tip their hats to Christian but must keep fighting for the home run king.
