Notes

# Mark McGwire led the American League in home runs in 1987 and 1996. He led the National League in 1998 and 1999. In 1997, he led Major League Baseball in home runs, but led neither the American or National League, as his season was split between the Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals. If that season had been included, then he was a League Leader for five seasons, four of which were in succession.
# Delahanty and Horner are the only players to hit four home runs in a game as a part of a losing effort [ [http://www.baseball-almanac.com/boxscore/07131896.shtml Baseball Almanac boxscore] ] [ [http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/1986/B07060ATL1986.htm Retrosheet box score, Expos at Braves July 6, 1986] ] .
