Kentucky MiLB Hitting Leaderboard

Minor League Baseball

During the college season BluGrass Baseball publishes a weekly leaderboard for all Kentucky collegians. Minor League Baseball is less conducive to such an arrangement because players are scattered across several leagues and ability levels, but I thought I’d publish the end of season statistical leaderboard in advance of the MiLB pitcher and player of the year awards coming out later this week. Remember stats from higher-level leagues are more impressive, but this is a good place to start in examining the best 2010 MiLB performances.

I’ll post a separate leaderboard for short-season players later this week in advance of the “Rookie of the Year” award.
