Best Answer

The run value of a home run can vary depending on the number of runners on base when it's hit. A solo homerun is worth just one run-- the player who hit the homerun. However, if someone is on all three bases when it's hit then the homerun knocks in 4 runs.

Nothing extra unless he has a clause in his contract stipulating that he makes extra money for each homerun hit. Most higher and elite ball players or ones prone to injury will get a bonus for total homeruns hit over a season but rare for single homeruns hit.
