Single Season Home Run Record By Pitchers
Wes Ferrell holds an interesting record. While he was pitching with the Cleveland Indians in 1931, he slugged 9 home runs, the most by a pitcher in a single season since 1893.
In 1933, Ferrell recorded 7 home runs for 2nd place on this list, since tied by several others. Next to the Boston Red Sox’s Babe Ruth, Ferrell is considered the best power-hitting pitcher in the game’s history.
