This is a list of the top 500 Major League Baseball home run hitters. In the sport of baseball, a home run is a hit in which the batter scores by circling all the bases and reaching home plate in one play, without the benefit of a fielding error. This can be accomplished either by hitting the ball out of play while it is still in fair territory (a conventional home run), or by an inside the park home run.

Barry Bonds holds the Major League Baseball home run record with 762. He passed Hank Aaron, who is currently second with 755, on August 7, 2007. Third is Babe Ruth with 714. Willie Mays (660), Ken Griffey, Jr. (630) and Sammy Sosa (609) are the only other players to have hit 600 or more.

The last change in the cutoff for the top 500 was on September 13, 2009, when Adam LaRoche hit his 134th homer and displaced two players from the list.
