Bombas away: See how the Twins broke MLB home run record
They did it. The Twins, long known as a ballclub with a power shortage, set Major League Baseball’s single-season home run record this summer with 307 home runs.
It took them just 135 games to hit 268 home runs, breaking the previous record of 267, set just last summer by the New York Yankees. They hit three home runs in the final game of the season to secure the record over this year's Yankees.
In the charts below, see how many “bombas” they have hit, where those home runs have gone and which players have hit the most. Charts and home run totals will be updated after each series.

Note: Spray charts and statistics obtained from baseballsavant.mlb.com. The field shown in the spray charts is modeled after Kauffman Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Royals. Due to the variation in fence distances at each ballpark, some dots may render inside the field of play.
MLB Statcast collects spray chart data by hand, and occasionally a home run goes uncharted. Seven of the Twins home runs are unaccounted for, according to Statcast data. The Star Tribune used videos of these home runs as well as Statcast data to estimate landing points for the unplotted home runs.
