The Single Season HR Leader....

In Japan, is from the Netherlands. His name is Wladimir Balentien. Balentien played in the majors, for both the Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds. He has played for the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, of the Nippon Professional Baseball league, the last four years.

He broke the single-season home-run record, in 2013, passing the then leader, Sadaharu Oh. Balentien's line in the majors, 170G/511AB/.221AVG/15HR/52RBI. Here are his NPB stats.

I thought the story was interesting, so I made him a part of my collection.
