The 200 home run club, while certainly tough to get into, doesn’t carry the same weight as its counterparts in the 400 and 500 range. Hitting home runs is no easy feat, not to mention doing it 200 times, but longevity can often help push mediocre hitters into the group. In looking up the 200 dinger club, I found some surprising names:

  • Phil Nevin (208)
  • Richie Zisk (207)
  • Carl Everett (202)
  • Todd Hundley (202)
  • Jhonny Peralta (202)

With his 200th career long ball on Wednesday night, Kyle Seager tied Mariner legend Adam Lind at the 350th spot on the career leaderboard. Lind, who hit 20 homers in his lone season with Seattle, hit 146 for Toronto, 14 for Washington, and 20 for Milwaukee. Seager, however, has been a company man through and through, sticking with the Mariners for all 200 of his souvenir shots

There are 11 other active players who have hit 200 home runs for their current team, although only six of them did it exclusively for one club. One of these men started his career with the team he currently plays for, left for one year, then came right back. To complete this test, try to think of all the players who have become synonymous with their current teams through the sheer power of hitting a baseball really far. We did not list their team, though, as that would have made this quiz far too easy.

Some active guys who hit 200 taters for one team, but no longer play for them:

  • Giancarlo Stanton (267 with Miami)
  • Evan Longoria (261 with Tampa Bay)
  • Edwin Encarnación (239 with Toronto)
  • Jay Bruce (233 with Cincinnati)
  • Carlos González (227 with Colorado)
  • Paul Goldschmidt (209 with Arizona)
  • Robinson Canó (204 with the Yankees)
  • Matt Kemp (203 with the Dodgers)
  • Andrew McCutchen (203 with Pittsburgh)
