Joe DiMaggio has one of the most noteworthy records in the history of baseball. He has the best strikeout to home run ratio of anyone with over 250 home runs. The Yankee Clipper slugged 361 home runs and only struck out 369 times. That is an astounding ratio of 1.02. The closest to him is Yogi Berra whose ratio was 1.16. The Cincinnati first baseman, Ted Kluszewski, is 3rd with a ratio of 1.31, while Ted Williams, the greatest hitter of All-Time, is 4th with a ratio of 1.36.
