What is Sadaharu Oh's total?

It has been claimed Josh Gibson hit over 800 in the Nergo leagues, a figure that plauseable when you consider that if Hank Aaron averaged two homers a year over 23 years of spring training, that's 801 right there.

I know minor league spring training, All-Star, and post season homers don't count, but we'll never know exactly how who has the most PROFESSIONAL home runs.

Why don't postseason HRs count in career totals?

Probably because not everyone plays in the postseason.
