Major League Baseball Sets A Record For Home Runs In A Single Season

MLB broke a record this season for most home runs ever in a season.  This past Tuesday, Kansas City Royals outfielder Alex Gordon hit the 5,694th home run for the year, breaking a record that was set back in 2000.

The Royals’ Alex Gordon said he didn’t plan to keep the historic ball, instead saying he would donate it to Cooperstown to be kept at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
