This made me curious about the records, and found it interesting to see the difference in the game over the years.

The current active leader for Sacrifice Hits (Sacrifice Bunts) is Elvis Andrus with 100, with the second place being Clayton Kershaw with 89. Yet this only ranks them 395 and 488 all time respectively.

The leader is Eddie Collins with 512 a record that may never be broken as the second place is Jake Daubert with 392. So Eddie Collins has more of a lead over second place than any current player has over their entire career (120 vs 100).

If this is a bunting stance, it certainly is a dangerous one.

Thanks, Ed. Not original, Ebbets Field Flannels replica cap and jersey. One or another of my card collecting buddies, I forget whom because of my CRS, mocked up the digital card.

Hat tip to the OP for a very cool thread.
