For this category, hitters need at least two seasons in which they qualify for the batting title. That, unfortunately, leaves only our usual four players on the list of best career batting averages since the 2006 draft…
|1||Dan Murphy||Luray ’05||0.296|
|2||Jon Jay||Staunton ’04||0.287|
|3||Jason Kipnis||Covington ’06-7||0.272|
|4||Yonder Alonso||Luray ’06||0.269|
Brett Gardner Watch: career .264 batting average. He would obviously slot in at #5.
No losers here. All four of these players have carved out a career playing an incredibly difficult game at the highest level in the world.
