We’re back to offensive categories in the Record Book series with batting average. This was a little more difficult to compile, but I’m fairly certain this is the accurate list. To qualify for the career list, the player had to play in at least 1,000 games and for the single-season list he had to appear in at least 100 games. Remember, we’re using the “Lincoln Rule” which limits the record book to players born in Kentucky.
