Memphis Bill…

Terry was the last major leaguer, not named Teddy Ballgame, to hit .400.

The big, New York Giants, first baseman hit .401 in 1930.

One thought on “Memphis Bill…

  1. So that means its been about 85 years( actually 65 years counting Teddy Ballgame) that a player has hit .400. Even with the modern day lower mound and a strike zone the size of a catchers mitt. Not just because baseball is my favorite sport I say this. Baseball is the most difficult sport; requires the most skills and therefore has the best athletes; and is the greatest sport on earth. As Pete Rose put it, in baseball if you fail 7 out of 10 times(i.e. bat .300) for your career, you are in the Hall of Fame.
