I believe you missed one of the most amazing baseball facts of all – that Joe DiMaggio hit 361 homers while striking out just 369 times. In fact, before his final season, he had hit 349 homers and fanned just 333 times. In seven seasons he had more homers than strikeouts, including 1941 when he hit 30 homers and fanned just 13 times (he struck out once every plate appearances that year). His highest strikeout total was 39 in his rookie season. Had he not been hitting into the cavernous left centerfield at Yankee Stadium during half his games his home run totals would undoubtedly have been much higher. I believe the only other power hitter who comes close to those kinds of numbers is Ted Williams, who struck out 709 times with his 521 homers.
