  • Top 10 single season out-makers

    This topic came up on another thread, so I thought that I'd look it up.

    Can you name any of the 7 players, who have the top 10 seasons having made the most outs. (yes that means some are in the top 10 more than once.)

    good luck

    I'd think Dave Cash and Juan Pierre, even with relatively high batting averages, would have to be there. And for the not so high batting average leadoff hitters, how about Omar Moreno?

    1955 1959 1963 1965 1981 1988 2017?

        1980 Moreno is first all-time with 560 outs

        Moreno is also ties for 7th twice, with 535 outs in 1979 and 1982

        The others are not on the list. Neither is Doc Cramer

          Over 500 outs is insane! Trying to think of other weak-hitting leadoff hitters. Which makes me think late 60s. Don Kessinger, maybe? Maury Wills might have hit too well also, but just a guess.

          Oh, I know- Horace Clarke. A lifetime .250 hitter that led in at bats several times? He's gotta be there. Still, that leaves at least a few I'm not thinking of, and I'm only fairly confident of one.

            Indeed the first step toward finding out is to acknowledge you do not satisfactorily know already; so that no blight can so surely arrest all intellectual growth as the blight of cocksureness.--CS Peirce

                  1970 Horace Clarke is 3rd at 542
                  1964 Bobby Richardson is tied for 4th with 536

                  All others are incorrect 4 to go

                    Juan Samuel had a few years in the '80s where he led the NL in AB and SO, I think. He must be on that list!

                    How about Lou Brock?

                      Nope and nope

                      84 Samuel is top 20

                              Wow, I really thought Samuel would make that top 10! Oh well, how about some of these guys striking out 200+ times a year?

                              Adam Dunn
                              Ryan Howard
                              Mark Reynolds
                              Drew Stubbs (lots of Ks for a leadoff guy)

                              Or some other '70s guys like:

                              Cesar Cedeno
                              Steve Garvey
                              Ken Griffey, Sr
                              Bobby Bonds
                              Dave Kingman
