Quarter of the way there

Dunn has hit 1/4 as many home runs as Hank Aaron has (he did so with #189). So where does he stand among the greats? Let's find out, shall we?

When Hank Aaron hit his 190th home run he was 26 years, 119 days old
Babe Ruth was 27 years, 173 days old
Barry Bonds was 28 years, 310 days old
Willie Mays was 27 years, 4 days old

Adam Dunn is 26 years, 235 days old.

Aaron took 3638 at bats
Ruth took approximately 2311 at bats
Bonds took 3754 at bats
Mays took 2989 at bats

Dunn took 2648 at bats

For the early portion of Dunn's career, he has fared quite well and is on his way to being one of the greatest home run hitters ever.

Saying goodbye to Bob Bailey, Charlie "King Kong" Keller and J.T. Snow (189)
