Some more analysis

Average age to start = 20.6 years old

Average playing time = 19.1 years

Most before age 25 = Mel Ott 211

Most before age 30 = Jimmie Foxx 379

Most before age 35 = Willie Mays 532

(Active players have not reached 35, Griffey hasnít reached age 30)

Most before age 40 = Hank Aaron 713

Most over age 35 = Babe Ruth 238

Most over age 40 = Dave Winfield 59

Best 10 year period = Babe Ruth Ė 470 (between the ages of 30 and 39) average of 47 a year

Assuming 19 years playing time where some active players would end up:

Ken Griffey Jr. 781 plus the 1998 total - would place him first all-time!

Mark McGwire 641 plus the 1998 total - would place him fourth all-time!

Barry Bonds 623 plus the 1998 total - would place him fifth all-time!
