  1. B. do you know if G. Brett was that consistent and who had the higher career batting avg?

    • McGee-Fan51, Gwynns average is 33 points higher than Brett’s and his on base percentage is almost 20 points higher too. The big number is K’s – in more games, Gwynn has half the number of strikeout than Brett. And Brett was a very disciplined hitter!!

  2. Thanks for the info! I knew you’d know the answer.

  3. Brett was great.. but Gwynns only real competition for best pure hitter of that era was Wade Boggs.. neither had a lot of pop.. but their amazing consistency made me a fan!
