In 1927, Ruth hit 60 homeruns. What % of the total American League amount did he hit? What was the league total?

In 1927 the league hit 439 home runs. Ruth had 13.67% of them.

If Barry Bonds would have hit 456 home runs in 2001 he would have matched Ruth's percentage.

Ruth actually had a higher percentage in 1920 when his 54 home runs accounted for 14.63% of the league's total.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by Lofunzo on Mon Nov 24, 2003 11:15 pm EST.</span>

Yup. The better question is did he know that without looking it up?
