Rogers Hornsby

Image

Career 359/434/577 hitter
175 OPS+ is 5th all time
359 average is second best all time, best in NL
Won batting title 7 times, and 6 straight from 1920-1925. In those six years combined to hit .397
Hit better than .300 15 times and better than .400 three times.
Won two HR titles and four RBI crowns.
Won triple crowns in 1922 and 1925.
Rogers is the only right-handed hitter in the 20th century to hit .400 in three seasons.
In 1922, Hornsby became the first National Leaguer ever to hit 40 home runs in a season.
Hornsby is the only player in history to average a .400 batting average over a 5 year span (1921-25).
Rogers’ .424 batting average in 1924 is the highest mark in the National League in the 20th century.

Got both Gehrig and Rogers last year too. Weird. Maybe I overrate them or Im lucky?

The Sabermagics proudly select the second greatest pitcher of all time, Robert Moses Grove, more widely known as "Lefty Grove."

"He was a moody guy, a tantrum thrower like me," Ted Willams once recalled of Lefty Grove, "but when he punched a locker or something, he always did it with his right hand. He was a careful tantrum thrower."
