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 and He hit safely 1078 times. An average of .402 during this five year run. Not too shabby.
From ages 36 to 41 – his final six years in the Majors Rogers batted 350 times in total. He 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 and never hit more than 12 home runs in a single year. Seven times he knocked in over 100 runs.
