Unusual Baseball Statistics

Statistics - I love Ďem

I have been fascinated by some of the statistics that have been amassed by some of the major leaguers. Viewing some players numbers has amazed me. My Baseball memorabilia are these amazing stats.

Here are a few achievements I thought might interest you.

Rogers Hornsby
From 1921 to 1925 he batted 2679 times -
He hit safely 1078 times
And averaged .402 during this five year run. Not too shabby

From ages 36 to 41 - his final six years in the Majors
he batted 350 times total
Hit safely 105 times and fell 70 hits short of
3000 hits for his career. Maybe he could have planned better.

Lou Gehrig
From 1930 to 1934 he drove in 813 runs
An average of 162 RBIs per year - Enough said
The man was a run producing machine

Ty Cobb
He had 1937 RBIs in his career
He never hit more than 12 home runs in a single year
Seven times he knocked in over 100 runs

Runs Batted In
