I started tweeting some of this last night and realized it would make a pretty awesome post. Among players who played their entire careers for just one franchise, here are the leaders in HR for each franchise. The disparity is unbelievable.

I went with retired players only, since many current players who would appear on a single team’s leader list will ultimately change teams later and fall off the list. I tried to list at least 5 players for each team but set a cutoff at a minimum of 2 career homers.
