Braves could repeat their 1973 feat: Three players with 40 homers

UPDATED: Mon., Sept. 16, 2019, 10:19 p.m.

Not even the 1927 New York Yankees, despite a lineup famously known as “Murderers’ Row,” had three players with 40 or more home runs. They had two, Babe Ruth with 60 and Lou Gehrig with 47, but no one else with more than 18. In fact, only three teams in MLB history have had three 40-homer hitters in the same season: the 1973 Atlanta Braves, the 1996 Colorado Rockies and the 1997 Rockies. Now the 2019 Braves are challenging to join the list.
