Major League Baseball is composed of 30 teams, divided into two major leagues the National and the American, with 15 teams in each. These leagues are further divided into three subdivisions: East, Central and West.

MLB 2019: the home run record season

The 2019 MLB season is mostly remembered for being the home run record-breaking year as nearly half of all MLB teams, from both the National and American leagues, achieved their best results.

However, not only did fourteen teams beat their own previous number, but we witnessed one of the tightest record battles between the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees, ending with the Twins taking the lead by 1 HR and breaking the record set by the Yankees just one year earlier.

The Minnesota team and a host of competitors stamped their name in history on numerous occasions throughout the 2019 season, claiming five of the top 10 including the first four spots.

Twins in the lead with Yankees hot on their heels

Currently, the teams that top the HR record list are headed by the Minnesota twins with 307 HR in a season and the Yankees just behind them with a total of 306 homers. The third spot remains way behind those two, with the Houston Astros claiming 288, followed by Los Angeles Dodgers' 279, Seattle Mariners' 264, and Texas Rangers' 260.

The rest of the teams which have made the top 10 are composed of the Baltimore Orioles, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Oakland Athletics who triple tie with 257 home runs and then the Chicago Cubs with 256.

At the other end, the teams that have the lowest records are the Pittsburg Pirates with 171 and the Kansas City Royals with a total of 193.

Presented below are each teams' home run records in a single season.
