Hitter of the Day
.342 2,660 hits
TheHitters.com is dedicated to the best pure hitters in baseball history.
Power hitting is not considered, as factors such as the dead ball era,
raising of the pitcher's mound, and steroid allegations all skew the numbers.
But there is one statistic that can not be challenged
for its validity over the decades: Batting Average. Batter vs. Pitcher, 9 fielders
on the diamond, hit the ball where they ain't. It hasnt changed in over 100 years.
Here we honor the 40+ men that were able to maintain a batting average over .320 for their entire career, many of them never batting below .300 in a single season.
Many active players like Ichiro Suzuki or Albert Pujols have averages that would put them on the list, but we will wait to see if they can maintain their numbers for their entire career...
