Single Season Leaders for Hit By Pitch

These are the Major League ballplayers that were there — really there. So close in fact that they were hit by the pitch, either intentionally or unintentionally by the opposing team's pitcher(s).

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the top one-hundred (100) single season career leaders for hit by pitch. Note: A bold faced entry denotes that the player was active during the previous Major League season.

"He certainly enriched the lexicon of baseball. (Hughie) Jennings would stand in the first-base coaching box, raise his fists, kick one leg into the air and yell: 'Here we are.' Finally, by sacrificing consonants for simplicity, this became 'Eee-Yah.' The fans would pick up the chant whenever Jennings would step onto the field, and sounds would ring through old Bennett Park. - Sportswriter Joe Falls of The Detroit News
