During the last 22 years batting averages were below .400 being Todd Helton with .373 (rounded up from .3724) in the year 2000. Usually players with good batting averages can lead the The 10 best home runs in MLB or the RBI ranking.

Ty Cobb holds the record for the best batting average at .366, while another player named Tony Gwynn holds the highest batting average record for a single season at .394 when he played for the San Diego Padres in the last decade of the 20th century (1994).
