The regular baseball season is over and the playoffs have started. This Summer I posted Babe Ruth’s pitching stats and now I am posting his batting stats with comparisons to some of the more exciting New York batting champs plus Ted Williams (a great benchmark in spite of his playing on Babe Ruth’s first team) and Hank Greenberg (a Bronx native). I abstracted certain statistics and sorted the list based on batting average. I only used the regular season stats which easily came from www.baseball-reference.com .
If you are a baseball fan, enjoy the comparisons. If not, thanks for putting up with this and the next blog should be more interesting and useful to you. BTW, Babe Ruth led the American League in home runs 12 seasons and in four seasons led in both walks and strike outs.
