Wladimir Balentien’s 55 Home Runs

Wednesday night, former Major Leaguer Wladimir Balentien came one home run closer to becoming Japan's home run king.

As you might recall, the Tokyo Yakult Swallows outfielder tied the legendary Sadaharu Oh (and Tuffy Rhodes and Alex Cabrera, for that matter) with his 55th home run. And with 20 games to go…odds are he'll get number 56 pretty soon.

So, while we wait for Balentien to be fitted with his new crown…why not look back at the 55 home runs he's already hit?
