Statistics - I love ‘em

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 -


He hit safely 1078 times


And averaged .402 during this five year run. Not too shabby

From ages 36 to 41 - his final six years in the Majors


he batted 350 times total


Hit safely 105 times and fell 70 hits short of


3000 hits for his career. Maybe he could have planned better

Lou Gehrig

An average of 162 RBIs per year - Enough said


The man was a run producing machine

Ty Cobb

He never hit more than 12 home runs in a single year


Seven times he knocked in over 100 runs
