Let’s work out the Major League Batting Average Leaders by first letter of the player’s last name, working through the alphabet, A-Z. Remember, there is no X, and this list is of all major leaguers, not just the Reds.
We have to put a qualifier here since it’s a rate stat: the player needs to have at least 3000 plate appeareances, which is essentially 5 full-time seasons. However, keep in mind that could also be 10 part-time seasons. One exception for the qualifier: the letter Q is lowered to 1000 plate appearances due to the lack of Q’s that have played.
There are some surprises….
