In the third installment of the BluGrass Baseball Record book we look at RBI.  While RBI have come under fire from sabermatricians of late, they are still recognized as one of the three big offensive stats by most casual baseball fans.  Remember, we’re using the “Lincoln Rule” which says a player must have been born in Kentucky to qualify for the record book.
