Some Astounding Baseball Statistics

Some Astounding Baseball Statistics

By Aron Wallad

Ty Cobb

His lifetime batting average of .367 is awesome. It is downright baffling.
Year after year of hitting over .300. His first year was the only year he hit less than .300
Nine years batting .380 or higher.
Including and after age 40 he batted .343
When he finished the year he turned 22
he had 765 hits

Lou Gehrig

Knocking in over 150 runs in a year seven times.

Rogers Hornsby

Hitting over .400 for a five year period.
From 1921 to 1925 he hit .401
He even batted .424 in 1924

Cy Young

Winning 511 games or
Losing 316 times or having 815 complete games.
Or pitching 7354 innings in his career.
Imagine if he had a reliable bull pen.

Barry Bonds

232 walks in 2002 with 120 of them being
intentional base on balls. Maybe the opposition was
nervous about pitching to him.
He also has 604 lifetime intentional walks.
Hank Aaron is number two with 293 intentional walks.

Hank Aaron

755 home runs in his career
He never hit 50 in a season.
6856 total bases
Stan Musial is number two with
6134 total bases
1477 extra base hits - # one rank
This is 100 more extra base hits than
# 2 – Stan Musial

Alex Rodriguez

From 1998 to 2003 (six seasons)
281 home runs – average 46.8 home runs per year
762 RBIs – average 127 per year
1100 hits – average 183 per year

Warren Spahn

He had a total of eight wins by the time
he turned 25 years of age.
He wins 62 games from age 40 to age 42.

Babe Ruth

In 1920 and again in 1927
He hit more home runs than every
team in the American League.

Mel Ott

In the year he reached his 22nd birthday
Up to and including age 22
He had the most runs – 463
Home runs – 115
Total bases – 1233
RBIs – 485
Bases on Balls – 362
Times on Base – 1089
Extra base hits – 266

I guess Mel got an early start.

I am sure there are some other astounding years
These accomplishments are a few of my top
productions in baseball history.
