Entering Friday night’s game against the Mariners, Tim Anderson led all American league hitters in batting average at .333. With DJ LeMahieu sitting at .325, Tim stands a good chance of leading the league in batting average should he qualify in plate appearances, as Jim outlined on Tuesday. Heck, Anthony Rendon sits at .335, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he could lead the majors by season’s end.
Today, we’ll be examining other White Sox hitters who have hit at least .300 in a full season. As one might expect, there are a lot of oldy-timey guys on the list, but there are plenty of newer guys, too. In total, there have been 165 player seasons: how many can you name? Good luck!
- A player must qualify for the batting title to make the list.
- This is a big list, so I’ve allotted 15 minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the year and the batting average.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- If Tim Anderson finishes the season at .330 or above, he’d be just the 15th unique player in franchise history to do that.
- Continuing the .330 theme, the Sox had a 54-year gap between .330 hitters (1940 and 1994).
- The average triple-slash of the players on this list: .317/.388/.462.
