Roberto Clemente Was A 4-Time Batting Champion!!!

Rarely mentioned when discussing the greatest hitters in the sport’s grand history, or even during his era, it should be noted that Roberto Clemente was a fantastic hitter.

He collected four batting crowns during his playing days, and retired from the sport with a .317 career average.

His batting titles were impressive:
.351 in 1961
.339 in 1964
.329 in 1965
.357 in 1967

He also led the National League in hits twice – in 1964 with 211 hits and in 209 hits in 1967.

Maybe it is time to start mentioning his name with the likes of Rod Carew, Tony Gwynn, Bill Madlock, and Wade Boggs…
