Just looking up some things on baseball almanac, [most rbi's in a season, most runs etc] I think Babe Ruths
1921 season is just sick and the best ever. [As do you]
Babe Ruth. Year 1921.
.376 BA. 59 HR. 177 runs. 171 RBI. 17 SB.
I think Hack Wilson in 1930 was not far behind personally.
Hack Wilson Year 1930
.356 BA, 56HR, 146runs, 191RBI, 3SB
I was also looking at Lou Gehrig's 1931 and 1927 seasons. Very close.
Lou Gehrig. Year 1927.
.373 BA. 47 HR. 149 runs. 175 RBI. 10 SB.
Lou Gehrig. Year 1931
.341BA, 46HR,163 RUNS, 184 RBI, 17SB
I dont know though. I think the .32 point BA difference might make the argument. Thats ALOT! 14runs, 9rbis yeah, even 7sb, very nice. BUT .32 Point BA difference makes 1927 the better year in my opinion. Cool topic.
