What a year it has been for home run hitters as Major League Baseball has officially broken the total home run record of 5,694. Alex Gordon’s home run tonight was the 5,694th of the 2017 season.
The name that goes in the @MLB record books: Alex Gordon. He hits HR #5,694 of 2017, the most ever hit in a single MLB season.

The craziest part, we still have two weeks of baseball left to play. The difference this year has been the rookie class. Aaron Judge with 44, Cody Bellinger with 38, Ian Happ with 22, the list goes on and on.
Here is the home run.
A new record for most homers hit in a season – EVER.
