Most AB in a season, no XBH

Posted by Andy on June 20, 2008

In his article on ESPN.com today about the pathetic Seattle Mariners, Jim Caple pointed out that Willie Bloomquist has no extra base hits yet so far this year. Here are the leaders among non-pitchers since 1958, in terms of most ABs in a season with zero XHB. Bloomquist already ranks pretty high, although he of course could come off at any time if he hits one down the line.

    http://www.bb-ref.com/pi/shareit/9vCh

    That's the most games to start a season with XBH = 0, over the last 10 seasons. Bloomquist is already pretty high on that list and can jump up a bunch of spots with just a few more games with no XBH.
