Best Answer

Babe Ruth set two major home run records in his career by the time he retired. The single season home run record and the all time career home run record. Roger Connor held the record for career home runs with 138, until Babe Ruth broke the record in 1921 when he hit number 139. The Babe would go on and finish his career with 714 in 1935. The record would hold up until 1974 when Hank Arron hit number 715. The Babe also set the single season home run record in 1927, breaking his own record of 59, in 1921. That record will stand until 1961 when RogerMaris hit 61, in 1961.
