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.

This table lists the career, single-season, active, yearly (meaning performances solely from that year) leaders following each season of Major League Baseball. Note that a player is considered active between the first and last season of their career. Entries under Single-Season from 1871-1875 are not carried forward past 1875. Entries under Career and Active do include totals from the 1871-1875 seasons.
