Babe Ruth had a total of 714 home runs. 708 of those were in the American League: 49 while a member of the Boston Red Sox and 659 as a member of the New York Yankees. In 1935, his final year, Ruth played for the Boston Braves of the National League where he hit six more home runs for a career total of 714. See Related Links below (Baseball-Almanac). This site has many baseball records, including home runs.

Addendum:

At one time in 1969, Babe was credited with 715 home runs. In 1919 while playing for Boston, Babe hit a home run. But the rules in 1919 stated that the game was over when the winning run crossed the plate. When Babe hit the home run, there was a runner on first. At the time, the game was tied so when the runner on first crossed the base, the game was over. Babe was credited with a triple but in 1969 the Special Rules Committee awarded him the home rum (along with 18 others in the same situation). But about 6 months later, the Special Rules Committee reversed themselves regarding the Babe and took away the home run. So Babe Ruth has 714 home runs, but for 6 months in 1969, he had 715.
