In Ted Williams’ final (and age 41) season, he hit .316/.451/.645/1.096 — 3 of the 4 of those stats would have led the league had he qualified. He hit 29 DONGS in 310 AB’s
But Moises Alou, not Teddy Balls, is the ONLY player to post a season in his 40s in which he he over .340 with 10 DONGS !!
Two players have ever hit 40 2B’s, 50 DONGS, and had 130 RBI’s: Chris Davis and Babe Ruth. Both also pitched. But only one did steroids
GIANTS TRIVIA! Which of these counterintuitive facts are TRUE:
1 Righties have a higher SLG% vs Matt Cain than Lefties!
2 Righties have a better batting avg and OPS vs Lincecum than Lefties!
3 Madbum has a better career ERA, WHIP, and K/BB Away than home!
1, 2, and/or 3??
Matt Downs is the ONLY player in MLB history to post a season in which he had under 200 AB’s, 18+ 2B’s, and 40+ RBI’s, and yet he’s out of baseball this year ? He should be starting the All-Star Game!
