In 1920 Babe Ruth Shattered his own single season home run record by hitting 54 dingers! Ruth had set that mark by hitting 29 home runs in 1919. Who held the single season home run record prior to 1919?

Ned Williamson, who hit 27 home runs in 1884. Williamson's previous career high in home runs was 3.

Little known fact: Williamson had the same Doctor as Manny Ramirez ;-7
