The 500-homer club

Next active players in line to join the club: Fred McGriff with 491, Ken Griffey Jr. with 481 and Juan Gonzalez with 429.

* McGwire led the majors with 58 home runs in 1997, but didn't lead either league because he was traded from the A's (American League) to the Cardinals (National League) in midseason.

** These numbers are through the 2002 season.
