  • Best Batting Averages (Relative to the Leagues)

    This is my list with the best Relative to league batting averages of all time. Interesting to see Gwynn, Carew and Boggs so high. Matty Alou and Tony Oliva with their borderline .300 BA almost tied or ahead of Sisler and Terry with their .340 BA. Joe D and Mantle separated by 1%. Hank Aaron ahead of Paul Waner is also interesting. These, of course are since 1900 forward.

    Where did you get the league numbers for a player's career? Do they reflect the league BA from 19xx-19xx?

      Here's my list, in quiz form. I use a different formula to calculate batting average relative to the league over a player's career. Data only goes up to 2010 (sorry).

        In BBRef you have where the traditional stats for a player are listed, a tab that reads "More Stats". Then you get all sorts of advanced stats, including what you ask.
