Hitting Charts

In ballparks and backyards across America, children pretend to be Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Barry Bonds, and other famous players. The kids know, as Mark McGwire said, "Home runs are cool." Home run hitters, and others who performed at the plate became idols because they dominate the hitting charts.

The following baseball hitting clubs, Top 1,000 career hitting charts and Top 500 single season hitting charts are meant to answer virtually any question you may have about the statistical leaders for most-hitting stats.

NOTE: If there are additional statistical data sets you would like us to add please contact us (Help, Feedback). Active players' names appear in bold print.

"Baseball was, is, and always will be to me the best game in the world." - Babe Ruth (Congressional Record, Volume 146, Part 3, March 21, 2000 to April 4, 2000 - Page 3,813)
