Default A needed moment of fun, with a prize!

There's no way I can enforce it, but WITHOUT LOOKING IT UP, can anyone tell me the only major leaguer to lead the league in strikeouts as a pitcher and Batting Average as a hitter? I'll send you something cool if you get it right first.

I'll say Ruth, also without looking it up. Did I win?

no, his best finish in strikeouts was 3rd.

Hard to believe he only won one batting title as well!

Great hitter, as a pitcher, but never even close to qualifying for a batting title.

nope same problem as Gibby, never enough AB's to qualify. Another thing that links Gibson and Wajo, both hit 24 career HR's!

How about that heavier set guy for the Cubs a few years ago, like in 2010? I can't even remember his name :P

2nd guess-- Mr. Hubbell?

I won't answer since I had to look it up. There is no way I would have guessed it, but now that I know I am going to have to store that is a fun fact.

nope, think you mean Zambrano who could rake, but neither he nor hubbell ever qualified for a batting title. There was also the pitcher for Arizona who could really a hit a few years back who flirted with converting, might have been Micah Owings? Not him either.
