Juan Pierre: With 267 home runs, Juan Pierre is second on the list. He spent 10 seasons with the Dodgers, finishing with 395 homers. Pierre was a force during his time with the team, helping them win four consecutive National League West titles from 2005 to 2008.

Who has the most World Series home runs? Babe Ruth hit 15 home runs and appeared in 167 plate appearances. Yogi Berra hit 12 home runs and appeared in 295 plate appearances. Duke Snider has 11 home runs and 149 plate appearances in his career. Lou Gehrig hit ten home runs and appeared in 150 plate appearances. Reggie Jackson has 116 plate appearances and 10 home runs. Joe DiMaggio has 8 home runs in 220 plate appearances. Barry Bonds has 7 home runs in 56 plate appearances.
As for current players, there have been five hitters who have hit more than one home run in the World Series: Jim Thome (1995, 1997), Mark McGwire (1998), Sammy Sosa (1996), Rafael Palmeiro (2002), and Manny Ramirez (2009).
Thome is the only player to hit two home runs in a single World Series game. He did this in Game 1 of both the 1995 and 1997 Series. Thome's brother, Tom, also played for the Chicago White Sox and he too had two home runs in a single World Series game. Both games were played at Chicago's Wrigley Field. The first time this happened was in 1989 when they both did so against Greg Maddux and the Atlanta Braves.
In addition to the two homers that Jim Thome hit in each of these games, he had another four hits in total. A triple, a double, an RBI, and a walk. This gives him a total of five hits in two games.
As of the completion of the 2017 MLB season, this slideshow shows the 24 players with the most home runs in MLB playoff history. Ramirez blasted 29 home runs in 111 games and slugged.544 in his playoff career. He played in the postseason for Cleveland, Boston, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The top five is complete with four members of the 2007 Boston Red Sox - Manny Ramírez, David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, and Jacoby Ellsbury - and one other player: Barry Bonds (76 HR's in 2001). The other three spots are shared among Indians stars Jim Thome (54), Ken Keltner (53), and George Brett (52).
When you add up all the home runs that players have hit during their postseasons, they total 589. Here are the leaders over the last 100 years:
Bonds (762) > Ted Williams (715) > Jimmie Foxx (607) > Frank Robinson (582) > Willie Mays (564)
From 1947 to 2016, there were only two seasons without a home run in the postseason: 1957 (no homers in World Series) and 1998 (no homers in Game 6 of the World Series).
Since then, there have been three more consecutive years without a homer: 2009-2011. This is the first time since 1914 that this has happened.
Babe Ruth: As of October 2020, this statistic shows the all-time home run leaders for the New York Yankees. With 659 home runs, Babe Ruth holds the record for the most in New York Yankees franchise history. He is also first in total bases (24th anniversary), hits (third), runs batted in (fourth), and extra-base hits (second). Ted Williams is second on this list with 521 home runs.
The most reasonable conclusion based on the statistics above is that Babe Ruth is the greatest New York Yankee hitter of all time.
It's worth mentioning that George S. Paige hit 57 home runs for the Boston Red Sox between 1914 and 1926, so he's a worthy candidate if you prefer another American League team. In fact, there are 12 different hitters from only four teams who have more than 500 career homers each. Here they are in order of number of homers: Ruth, Williams, Mark McGwire, and Sammy Sosa.
Ruth and Williams played during an era when baseballs were made of leather, not plastic. They often got hundreds of blows per game and their bats were rarely ever re-faced. So it's no surprise that they led the league in home runs many times between them. In fact, Ruth led the league in home runs eight seasons, including 1918 when he hit 54 bombs.
Delgado, Carlos With 336 home runs, Carlos Delgado holds the record for the most in Toronto Blue Jays team history. The Dominican Republic native played for the Blue Jays from 1989 to 2005, and during his time with the team, he hit.284 with 336 home runs and 984 RBIs.
He is also one of only three players to have both a century strike out rate (percentage of swings and misses) and a triple percentage (percentage of balls put in play that turn into hits) in more than 100 games (the others are Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez).
Delgado's wife, Michelle, is a former Major League Baseball player who played first base for the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago White Sox. She was born in Santo Domingo and grew up in Puerto Rico before moving to Canada when she was 10 years old. She became a Canadian citizen in 1996.
She married Delgado in 1990, just two seasons after he joined the team, and they have two children together: a son named Carlos Jr., and a daughter named Kristina.
The most home runs any other player has hit while playing for the Blue Jays is 239 by Joe Carter in 1992.
