When Mike Schmidt hit his 500th career home run on April 18, 1987, at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, he became the first Phillies player to reach the threshold of 500 homers as a member of the team.

Since then, no other play has come close to matching Schmidt’s accomplishment.

With 548, the Hall of Fame third baseman is the Phillies franchise leader in home runs. Here’s a look at the team’s home run leaderboard.

1. Mike Schmidt, 548

Schmidt, the greatest player in franchise history, spent the duration of his career in Philadelphia from 1972-1989. He led the National League in home runs eight times, including in 1980 when he hit a career-high 48. Schmidt also hit four home runs in one game in 1978, tying a major-league record.

The right-hander hitter was named to 12 All-Star teams throughout his career and won NL MVP three times. Schmidt was the superstar of the Phillies team that won the 1980 World Series, winning World Series MVP.

2. Ryan Howard, 382

Howard burst on the scene in Philadelphia, winning NL Rookie of the Year in 2005, NL MVP in 2006 and becoming the fastest player to reach 100, 200, then 250 homers. He led the majors in home runs in 2006 and 2008.

A key part of the Phillies teams that won the 2008 World Series and five straight NL East titles from 2007-2011, Howard spent his whole career with the team from 2004-2016. Injuries hampered the latter part of his career, but he still amassed the second highest total of home runs in team history.

3. Del Ennis, 259

Ennis spent the first 11 seasons of his 14-year career with the Phillies from 1946-1956. The outfielder made three All-Star teams and averaged 24 home runs per season with the team. He hit a total of 288 home runs in his career.

4. Pat Burrell, 251

The No. 1 overall pick in the 1998 draft, Burrell played nine seasons for the Phillies to start his career. He was the starting left fielder for the 2008 World Series champions. Burrell played from 2000-2011 and hit a total of 292 home runs in 12 seasons.

5. Chuck Klein, 243

Klein had three stints in Philadelphia during his 17-season career, winning the 1932 NL MVP as a Phillie and winning the Triple Crown the next season. He also hit four home runs in a game in 1936.

He led the NL in home runs four times and hit exactly 300 home runs in his career that lasted from 1928-1944. Klein was named a Hall of Famer in 1980.

6. Chase Utley, 233

Utley played for the Phillies from 2003-2016 during his 16-season career. He was a key member of the 2008 World Series team and a six-time All-Star. One of the best offensive second basemen in MLB history, Utley was given four Silver Slugger Awards. He hit 259 career home runs.

7. Greg Luzinski, 223

Luzinski played in Philadelphia from 1970-1980 before spending four years with the White Sox. He made four All-Star teams with the Phillies and was a middle-of-the-order bat for the 1980 Phillies. He slugged 307 home runs in his career.

8. Cy Williams, 217

After six seasons with the Chicago Cubs, Williams finished his career with the Phillies from 1919-1930. He led the NL in home runs four times — three times with the Phillies — and hit 251 career homers.

9. Jimmy Rollins, 216

The 2007 NL MVP, Rollins played for the Phillies from 2000-2014, then played two more seasons with the Dodgers and White Sox. He was a three-time All-Star and won the 2007 Silver Slugger at shortstop.

Rollins hit 231 career home runs and his 46 career leadoff home runs is fourth in MLB history.

10. Dick Allen, 204

Allen spent two stints with the Phillies in his career that spanned from 1963-1977. He won the NL Rookie of the Year as a Phillie in 1964.
