  • Since 1941 who has been over .400 in August?

    There are two off the top of my head:

    1980- George Brett (over.400 on September 19)
    1993- John Olerud (over .400 on August 2)

    Honorable mention:

    2000-Todd Helton (at .399 on August 18, ONE hit short of a .400 BA!)

    Anyone else?

    I couldn't find daily stats for Ted Williams' 1957 season when he hit .388.

    maybe Gwynn, Carew, LWalker?
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        I remember Gwynn commenting during a game that both he and Larry Walker were over .400 at the All-Star game. Not sure which year he was referring to.

        When was the last time a slow right handed hitter was hitting .390 or higher almost halfway through the season?

        Ok, how about the last slow right hander hitting .390 with 20 homeruns also at this stage in the game?

            I already checked Carew and Gwynn. Neither of them were over .400 in August. I haven't checked Walker.

                Dang, then that means since Carew ended at .388 in '77, he probably ended the year batting at least .388 for the last month when guys wear down

                    In 1977 Carew's hight point was .410 on 7/2/77. He was over .400 as late as 7/10/77. He got as low as .374 on 8/26/77.

                      As for Gwynn in 1994, he was only three hits shy of .400 when the strike hit.

                        This is the closest I could find: Nomar Garciaparra was at .394 on August 8, 2000.

                          Since Williams hit .406, the only four players to be hitting .400 after July 17 are Garciaparra, Walker, Olerud and Brett and the only 2 hitting over .400 in August were the 2 mentioned by Honus Wagner Rules..

                              I find it amazing that since 1941 only two players have been at .400 as late as August 1st! Wow.
