There's obviously the comfort factor - 13 of his home runs have come at home this season, with 94 over his 6 seasons at Marlins Park. Potential ties are broken by a 60-second "swing-off". He's played in 26 major league stadiums over seven seasons, but has never taken the field in Miami.

Bellinger is going to win NL Rookie of the Year and became the fastest player in league history to hit 21 career home runs. Sanchez hit 20 home runs in 51 games last season, good for No. 6 on the all-time Yankees rookie list. McGwire holds the rookie record with seven.
