Batting Average League Leaders

Postby wake » Tue Jun 13, 2006 9:00 pm

Who would've guessed that the leaders in batting average for both leagues would be catchers? Mauer is hitting .389 in the AL and McCann is hitting .368 in the NL. McCann doesn't have quite enough ABs to qualify because of his injury but he is still batting 30 points higher than the current leader, Holliday. Anyone see them being able to continue this hitting through their career (though about 40-50 points lower for each of them).

I think Mauer has a good chance for the AL Crown, but I don't see McCann doing it in the NL.

Didn't even know Holliday was leading the NL, good to hear! Atkins is up there too.

Yeah, if we were accounting for injured players, Nomar would be #1 BA.

But McCann has a shot. Mauer does too. Although it will be tough.

Catchers usually tire out by the end.
Has any catcher ever won the Batting title?

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

...actually you can have fewer ABs than that and still win the batting title like tgwynn did over ellis burks a few years ago..lets say a hitter has 490 plate appearances instead of the 502 needed, you add in 12 hitless ABs (the difference of 490 to 502) and if his average is still higher he is the batting champ...read john dewan's stat of the week at http://www.actasports.com
