1972: 12
1915: 11

There are currently 25 players with at least 175 PA and a batting average of .230 or less, so the 2012 # could easily be smashed in 2013.

  1. Too many pitchers are used in a 9 inning game, especially compared to the situation back in the 1960s, for example. Is baseball moving toward the lunacy of a team employing 12 pitchers in a 9 inning game? Does MLB baseball really think the fans want the lack of hitting that we saw in baseball in the 1963-1968 period, the so-called Era of the Pitcher? I think not. In the NL, the situation is especially grave. Last time I looked the NL combined batting average was a measily .251 1/2.
