  • Why 1894?

    national league

    league batting average
    1892 - .245
    1893 - .280
    1894 - .310

    league slugging:
    1892 - .328
    1893 - .380
    1894 - .436

    the mound was pushed back before 1893, so why the bust out in '94?

    --The BA jump was bigger in 1893. Maybe it took a year before hitters fully realized they could drive the ball better?

      One reason could be the new rule stating that the batter was not charged with a time at bat for a sacrifice hit that advances a runner.
