Thanks to penciling Juan Pierre into the No. 1 spot in the lineup for the last two years, the White Sox have the longest streak of games without a leadoff home run in the majors -- 326 games, to be exact, per CSNChicago's Chris Kamka.
The last time a White Sox player began a game with a clout was on Oct. 2, 2009, when Scott Podsednik took Edwin Jackson (then on Detroit) yard at Comerica Park. None of the three home runs Pierre hit with the White Sox were of the leadoff variety, although that probably won't play into his battle with Podsednik for a bench spot on the Phillies.
For reference, here are the five longest leadoff clout droughts heading into 2012:
