You might remember Wladimir Balentien when he played for the Seattle Mariners. He was an OK hitter—in parts of three seasons in 'The Show'—hitting a grand total of 15 HRs. Now, as a member of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows of the Nippon Professional Baseball League, he has collected 51 dingers (as of today) and is four bombs shy of tying the all-time Japanese record (55). With five more, he will pass the legendary Sadaharu Oh and two other ex-MLB players: Tuffy Rhodes and Alex Cabrera. Balentien has 32 games to notch the five round-trippers. Looks like a lock.
