Cubs Trivia:

Who has the highest single-season batting average (post-1900) as a Cubs hitter?

Haha. This time I am going to seriously guess Hack Wilson with .356 in 1930. Not positive. I have some other thoughts on who it could be, but Hack is the highest avg I know off the top of my head.

I think it's either Rogers Hornsby or Cavaretta, I'll guess Hornsby.

I agree with the King. It's gotta be 1929 Hornsby (.380). I palyed that team in Strat-o-Matic all the time. Riggs Stephenson and Cuyler were over .360.

Hornsby it is.

Comedy points to Twinkie the Kid for Ontiveros!

I would have said Bob Buhl. An incredible lifetime stat of 857 AB's 76 hits with 2 doubles included in that hit parade :) and a lofty . BA of .089


My choice as worst Cub hitter in my lifetime. But he was worthy of an MVP IMO as he and Larry Jackson were dealt to the Phillies for HOF'er Ferguson Arthur Jenkins.
A most lopsided deal rivaling the Phillie deal for Sandberg and Bowa for Ivan DeJesus, gosh I sure do have a soft spot in my heart for those Phillies.

Can we just take a minute to recognize how completely ridiculously awesome the Cubs were in the 10s and 20s? Going back and looking, the number of "great" players on those teams is pretty amazing.

Really! They weren't bad in the 1930's either. Won the pennant every 3 years ...1929, 1932, 1935, 1938.

I remember the futility of Bob Buhl at the plate!! Prolly way off, but it seems like he might have had like a 70 some hitless at bat streak. Last September, Vitters looked like he was going to give Buhl a run for that .089 batting average!

Here is a photo of him leaving the park after learning he was traded to the Cubs in 1962

Bob Buhl is from Saginaw, Michigan which is the worst place I've ever been to in my entire life (and I've been everywhere, man)
