Schmidt didn’t play that long

Yount didn’t make it to 95 either....so I’d guesses

Only in the 70s and 80s. That's going to be tough for me.

One is easy and one takes more thought....several are close but just played in 60’s or 90’s

Yes...1972-89 548 HR

So damn impressive during a time where only George Foster hit 50 in a season and often 40 would lead the league

Mike Schmidt started in1972 and ended in 1989. So that is one.

I'm looking at the baseball-reference 2019 MLB standings section on their homepage thinking through each team in order trying to figure out big boppers that played for each team. It lead me to Schmidt immediately. I'm having trouble thinking of another.
