The MLB National League rookie home run record is jointly held by Wally Berger, who knocked 38 out of the park in his first season with the Boston Braves in 1930, and by Frank Robinson, who matched that feat in his debut with the Cincinatti Reds in 1956. Berger was 25 when he set the mark, older than the average rookie. Robinson was 21.
