Ted Williams .400 Average Long Standing Records Adını Feriha Koydum 23
Ted Williams was the last Major League player to hit .400 in a season and it happened 70 years ago in 1941. That year he hit .406.

In some respect it still is a long standing record as no Major League ball player has been able to sustain the .400 batting mark for an entire season since “the Splendid Splinter” did so. The 1941 season didn’t start well for Williams as he broke a bone in his ankle during spring training that forced Williams to pinch hit for the first two weeks of the season. As Bobby Doer was noted as saying, the injury helped Williams that season as he had to take less pressure of his right leg.

Entering late September with an average of .39955, Williams had the option to sit out the final two games, a doubleheader against Philadelphia. His average would have rounded up to .400, but in true Red Sox fashion, Williams would play because he felt he wouldn’t deserve the .400 achievement had he sat out.

Williams would go 6 for 8 during the doubleheader and not only secure his .400 average, but raise it to .406 for the season; a truly remarkable feat.

Will this long standing record ever be broken? I have to say no. It’s been 70 years and think of some of the best hitters that have come and gone since “Mr. Red Sox” last hit over .400.

A few names come to mind: Mickey Mantle, Rod Carew, Stan Musial, Hank Aaron, Pete Rose, Carl Yastrzemski, Frank Robinson, George Brett, Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, Bernie Williams, Larry Walker, Ichiro, Derek Jeter and Joe Mauer. Just a few names of some of the season batting champs in both the American and National leagues since 1941. Read More
