Former Twin and lovable sprite Ben Revere has gone his entire career without a home run. 1565 at bats without a home run. It was the longest stretch to start a career without a dinger. He’s in his 5th season. It wouldn’t have been too far off base to wonder if he would EVER hit a home run. Still, Revere has carved a place in the league by being on base frequently and fielding...
