Just Rose doesn't work for Pete Rose

Yep, Pete Rose sure did fix things.

@BobSaget Ha, Ha! No, he didn't.

You should add Julio Franco, he was 23 years, plus 2 overseas, and played til he was 49
Oct 6, 2016
So, he played 23 seasons...which is fewer than anyone else on this list. Why should he be added, exactly?
Apr 23, 2015
All the "since 1950" ones threw me for a loop. I know a lot of ACTUAL leaders, but most of them didn't play since the 50's

How many names can you think of for a home run? http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/103225/different-names-for-a-home-run

Slugging Percentage is the common term, never heard anyone call it slugging average.
Jan 13, 2017
Vladimir Guerrero has a .318 batting average too.
May 12, 2017
Got 42/53 without even typing the names of Bonds, A-Roid, McGwire, Sosa and Clemens. Missed Lefty O'Doul, K-Rod, Dean Chance and Eddie Collins. Also missed Juan Gonzalez, but he juiced too, so no biggie.
Aug 14, 2017
O'Douo only qualifies marginally. He didn't quite have 10 full seasons in the majors.
Jan 26, 2018
As a batter, O'Doul only had four TRULY full seasons. He won two batting titles (.398 with Phillies in 1929---his first full season! & .368 with Dodgers in 1932). For those four full seasons (1929-1932) he hit a blistering .373. Not bad production for a guy who was already in his 30s when he had those four seasons. It's closed now but he had a restaurant in San Francisco, near Union Square, "Lefty O'Doul's", that was a great cafeteria style place to eat, and it had scores of photos all over the walls autographed by players galore. Lefty didn't stick around in the majors because he missed S.F. and the Bay Area too much to stay away. For a guy with a .349 lifetime BA, he did NOT leave because there weren't any teams wanting him!!!

Lefty wasn't a regular in his last years, but an important back-up. He got what proved to be the game-winning hit in game2 of the 1933 World Series. I ate at his restaurant. Quite a place.

Just a note on Rogers Hornsby: **beginning of the 20th century through the present, Hornsby holds the top 3 highest seasonal batting averages for the Cardinals (.424, .403, .401 in 1924, 1925, 1922), the top one for the Cubs (.380 in 1929), the top one for the Braves (.387 in 1928), and when he hit .361 (in 1927) for the Giants it was also their 20th century single-season record until broken a couple years (or so) later. He may have been a curmudgeon but that guy could hit in his sleep!

Had my first corned beef at Lefty O'Doul's when I was ten and my dad took me there. Ten years later, Pop sent a copy of "The Glory of Their Times" to me in Vietnam. He had Lefty autograph his picture (Harry Hooper, too).
May 9, 2018
We must have a lot in common, at least baseball-wise. One year when I was in-between college years(?) I actually drove down to Santa Cruz and went to Harry Hooper's home. Got a couple autographs (one on a photo from his playing days). Harry passed away two or so years later. Another time I was able to get Joe DiMaggio's when I went to a ballfield that was being named for him, or the kids' league playing there (in Marin), saw it in the paper, said "I'm going", and surrounded by a bunch of kids (I was the only adult who ventured out on the field to get his autograph, unashamedly) I was fortunate that he was gracious enough to give it---he looked surprised such a "big kid" was out there.

Why only since 1950? Most people start the modern era with the 1901 season - the first World Series.
Sep 30, 2020
The first World Series was played in 1903. (Boston Americans/Red Sox vs Pittsburgh Pirates)
Oct 2, 2020
Duh. You're right. Still doesn't answer the question about only since 1950.
May 29, 2019
Tris Speaker is actually 6th in career batting average at .3447. Ed Delahanty is #5 with at lifetime .3458.
Sep 30, 2019
Ed Delahanty played most of his career prior to the modern era so he is not included as per the caveats.
Jul 2, 2020
Billy Hamilton has 914 career stolen bases. Is there a reason he isn't included here?
