Will MLB see another player hit .400 again? Mon, July 21, 2008
It has been 67 years since Ted Williams reached the elusive plateau of .400 and Chipper Jones' flirtation with it this season has only reinforced how difficult chasing it will be.
Jones didn't even get into mid-August like former San Diego Padre Tony Gwynn or to Aug. 2 the way former Toronto Blue Jays first baseman John Olerud did in 1993 (he ended up winning a batting title at .363), and buzz was already starting to build before injuries set him back.
Do you think hitting .400 is still attainable in this day and age of relief pitchers? Have your say in our forum.
