I feel like that's the kind of thing you can look up on BR.com's play index....but I'm not positive (and don't have a subscription).

I don't know about seasons, but I know that Ted Williams had 5 HRs in his career which is most by any player.

In all seriousness, the answer to your question lies within the deep, dark confines of Retrosheet.org.

Hope you're good at data manipulation, cause they have lots to manipulate. :-o

I tried doing that, but I don't think it can happen. My first thought was to filter all players' HR stats based on game scores (i.e. find all players with HR in 1-0 games), but they don't allow that game score option. Next, I thought to filter all teams' stats where they score only 1 run and they had a HR in the game, but you can't filter the opponents score to 0. I wasn't prepared to look through the huge list of results it spit out just to find the 1-0 games amidst all the 1-4, 1-8, 1-10 etc, games.
