Only players who finished in the top 40 for the majors in a season will appear on this list.
Leaders from the current season are only included for rate stats after July 1st.

This statistic is computed from play-by-play data which is only complete from 1974 to the present. From 1938-1973, the data is incomplete, though for most seasons only less than 20 games per season total are missing. Please see our page on data coverage for a full view of the data used to create these lists.


Note that seasons prior to 1876 are not included in single-season marks, but are included in career marks.
