      He went 3-4 with 2 homers in todays game and I think that he is at .395 now...

      He is only 2 rbi's from Carlos Lee from leading in every triple crown catagory..

      Very Impressive...

          Does anyone have daily stats for Ted Williams 1957 season? Retrosheet doesn't have them.

                    When Ted Williams hit .388, he was at .401 on June 5 and never saw .400 again.

                    In 1994, the latest Gwynn saw .400 was May 15.

                    In 1977, the latest Carew saw .400 was July 10.

                    Ichiro never saw .400 when he hit .372 in 2004.

                    In 2000, the latest Todd Helton saw .400 was June 10, Nomar last saw it last on July 20.

                    In 1999, Larry Walker last saw it on May 26.

                    In 1997, Tony Gwynn last saw .400 on July 14.

                        I did some research last year and I only found four players over .400 after July 1st since 1941. I couldn't find any daily stats for Stan Musial 1948 season. He hit .376 in 1948.

                        09/18/1980 George Brett
                        08/02/1993 John Olerud
                        07/17/2000 Nomar Gaciaparra
                        07/10/1977 Rod Carew

                        In 2000 Todd Helton was at .399 (one hit short of .400) on August 18th

                          In '97, Gwinn made it through July 14th at .402.

                          And lookling game-by-game at his '94 and '97 seasons, as well as '93, '95 and '96, he could have hit .400, and not just once. He was basically in the .380s all year long until September.

                            No, but this is a very august topic.

                            Below are Ted Williams and teammate Joe DiMaggio, right after Williams won the All Star Game in July of '41. DiMaggio was well on track to break .400 until the very end of the season when he forced to continue playing despite an eye infection. He lost about twenty points in two weeks or so, and ended up with a measley .381.

                              Thought these might have done it, but
                              Nomar .394 on 8/6/00
                              Boggs .381 on 8/14/83, .371 on 8/16/87
                              Bonds .375 on 9/14/02, .375 on 9/12/04

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.

                                Since when is batting .381 considered "measly"? Are you referring to 1939? DiMaggio only hit .357 in 1941.
