The ABCs of All-Time Phillies Home Runs

Phillies career home run leaders by letter

The ABCs of All-Time Phillies Home Runs

The Phillies designated Humberto Quintero for assignment Wednesday, and there is one reason we'd be sorry to see him leave the organization ... He is the Phillies' all-time leader in home runs by players whose last name starts with Q.

Before his departure, he was one of six members of the 2013 team that led (or tied) at their respective letter.

Here are the Phillies' all-time home run leaders and runners-up for each letter (2013 Phillies in bold)::

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
