The only player nowadays I could see making this list is Emmanuel Burriss, an I'm not even trying to be biased.

No. 2, Eddie Collins, drew 101 walks that year, which obviously helps his OPS. Lajoie had barely half that in his two seasons on the list combined. But with so many hits and so many doubles, he makes up for it.

Since 1901 there have been 43 players who have qualified for the batting title (as defined at the time) without hitting a home run or a triple. Only 4 players have done it since 1946; Ron Hunt (in '72 and '74), Frank Taveras in 1980 and Mike Squires in 1981. Of the 43 players only 3 posted an OPS+ over 100; Miller Huggins in 1913(118), Jimmy Collins in 1907(111) and Johnny Bassler in 1922(108).
