Trivia trivia, time for the weekly trivia.
Today I want to focus on batters who struck out more than 100 times in a season.
Take a stab at the questions below and see how many you can get.
I'll post the answers tomorrow…
- Who recorded the lowest amount of hits in a season they K'd 100 or more times during the '70s?
- Who recorded the highest batting average during the decade for a player with 100+ strikeouts in a season?
- These two players hit the fewest home runs in a season with 100+ strikeouts with only TWO. One batter did this in 1977, followed by another just a year later. Who are they?
- Who collected the fewest walks in a season they struck out 100 or more times during the decade?
- Finally, who posted the highest On-Base-Percentage in a season they topped 100 strikeouts during the '70s?
1. Dave Kingman, Giants. He collected only 62 hits in 1973 while topping 100 strikeouts.
2. Dave Parker, Pirates. He batted .338 in 1977.
