Minor League Record Book: Home Runs, Career

Today we’ll take a look at the most minor league home runs in a career:

2006-2019
1 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-06 159
2 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 150
3 Rudy Flores Haymarket ’10 112
4 Ryan McBroom Haymarket ’10-1 102
5 Jacob Wilson Luray ’09 100
6 Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 97
7 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 94
8 Joey Butler New Market ’06 92
9 Tyler White Haymarket ’10 87
10 Tony Thomas Harrisonburg ’05 84
Ben Guez Covington ’06 84
12 Blake Tekotte Woodstock ’06 83
13 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 77
14 Rebel Ridling Covington ’06 76
15 Jon Griffin Luray ’10 71
16 AJ Kirby-Jones Waynesboro ’09 64

With the new ball in Triple-A in 2019 (which almost doubled home runs at that level!), this list has been changed quite a bit.

  • Eric Campbell joined at 13th
  • Ryan McBroom moved from tied for 12th all the way up to 4th
  • Jacob Wilson moved from 7th to 5th
  • Mac Williamson actually passed one player (Joey Butler), but fell one spot
  • Collin Cowgill moved from 11th to 7th

McBroom, Cowgill, and Campbell are all still active. (And Tyler White, too, but he’s mostly a major leaguer now.)

All-Time
1 Jeff Manto Front Royal 243
2 Joe Koshansky Staunton ’02-03 186
3 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-06 159
4 Ryan Shealy Harrisonburg ’99 158
5 Andy Abad Harrisonburg ’93 157
6 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 150
7 Christopher Carter Waynesboro ’01 146
8 Alan Cockrell Staunton 141
9 Erik Kratz Way,Harr ’00-01 134
10 Luke Scott Staunton 125
11 Stephen Smitherman Winchester ’98-9 114
12 Rudy Flores Haymarket ’10 112
13 Jack Voigt Staunton 111
14 Darrell Whitmore Front Royal 106
15 Ryan McBroom Haymarket ’11-12 102
16 Steve Decker Front Royal 101
17 Dan Pasqua New Market ’81 100
Nick Stavinoha Front Royal ’03 100
Jacob Wilson Luray ’09 100
20 Larry Sheets Staunton 99
Luis Lopez Winchester ’92-3 99

With Wilson and McBroom joining this list with 100 or more home runs, future hitters will have to hit at least 99 to join (Pat Watkins, with 95, dropped off).

By the way, Erik Kratz is still active up there at 9th.
