    Interpreting "qualified for the batting title" as someone with 503 plate appearances in a season the lowest batting average amongst qualifiers would be Rob Deer, 1991, with a .179 average.

      I believe that would be Bill Bergen in 1909 who was 48-346 for a .139 average. Under the qualifications of the time (which I believe was 100 games) he qualified.

        Thats interesting because I didnt know if anyone could qualify with an average under .200 because I'd imagine they'd lose their job and be sent to a minor league.

          A lot of middle infielders (check out Ray Oyler) made up for that with their glove.
