Not since Babe Ruth, in 1919, has a Major League pitcher has as much success outside his area of expertise. For the Boston Braves, in 1919, Ruth hit 29 home runs, while going on to win 9 games.

This season Shohei Ohtani, the Angel's pitcher-slash-designated-hitter, won 9 games and hit 46 home runs. Let's use Cascade to build two charts.

  • One of all hitters (non-pitchers) from 2021, sorted by most home runs hit
  • And one of all pitchers, also sorted by most home runs hit

Want to see how I put these together in Cascade? You can watch along below.
