Mike Moustakas breaks the Royals single season home run record Steve Balboni has held since 1985 with home run #37 tonight!

Steve Balboni comments on the record home run:

It's been all about home runs for this team and September 6th the Royals set the team record for home runs in a season with 169 when Salvador Perez hit his 23rd home run.  The previous record was 168 in 1987.

But it's not only the Royals breaking records as this has been the year of the long ball in MLB as well.  There have been more home runs this year than any other year and Alex Gordon actually broke the old record with the home run he hit in Toronto.
