Based on at least 100 career home runs, which non-active player had the highest percentage of his home runs in one season?

For example: Hank Greenberg had 331 career homers with a season high of 58. He hit 17.52% of his total in one season. I'm looking for the person with the highest percentage.

does brady anderson have 100? If so, its probably him.
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

It's not Brady. He hit 50 of his 210 in one season or 23.80 percent. The leader is well over 30%.

ok...I did the math on this one and he's sitting at 31.6%. (heck...Im a braves fan...should've thought of this guy long ago)

Davey Johnson. He hit 43 in '73, but only 136 over his whole career.

alright...3rd time's the charm. This was a great question. Im 100% sure this is right. No way anyone could do better and worse (watch me get proved wrong). Strangely, only when I wasnt trying to figure out the answer to this question did it hit me.

Bob Cerv hit 38 hrs in 1958 for KC, and only 105 total in his 12 years in the majors. That's 36.2%.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by utterchaos on Thu Jul 15, 2004 8:15 am EST.</span>

That's it, good job! Bob Cerv is the guy I was looking for.

The Top 5:
Bob Cerv 38/105 - 36.2%
Geronimo Berroa 36/101 - 35.6%
Davey Johnson 43/136 - 31.6%
Tilly Walker 37/118 - 31.4%
Lefty O'Doul 32/113 - 28.3%
