24 Hall of Famers had a homer (on average) for every 20.0 or less At bats that they had during their career. Babe Ruth, for example had a HR every 11.76 AB to lead all Hall of Famers., while Johnny Bench had a homer every 19.69 at bats.

Below are 21 of those 24. Your job is to figure out who is missing! Good luck!

Heh...I only answered 1/3 of the question... :-B

I would put two other names down, but that probably wouldn't count, plus people would see it. :-/

It's ok - your guy isn;t in the hall of fame - has to be a hall of famer.

I ran a query for HOF players with lower than 20 AB/HR and all the guys who ever got votes for the HOF showed up. Here are the guys who have received HOF votes, but never got inducted, with lower than 20 AB/HR:

Boog Powell
Cecil Fielder
Dale Murphy
Danny Tartabull
Dave Kingman
Dick Allen
Frank Howard
Gil Hodges
Hank Sauer
Kevin Mitchell
Norm Cash
Rocky Colavito
Roger Maris

Yes... somebody actually voted for Kingman and Tartabull to be in the HOF. And Kevin Mitchell :-b Must have been that barehanded catch in the OF that did it.
