The most unbreakable records in MLB history: .366 All-time batting average

In today’s game, players are patted on the back more so than ever before when they knock one out of the park. As a result, players have placed most of their time and efforts in practice, perfecting the art of hitting home runs.

While fans might enjoy watching their favorite players knock a ball or two out of the park, a person who’s also enjoying it is Ty Cobb.

At the moment, Cobb has a slim lead on the all-time batting average leaderboard with .366. To give you an idea of how safe Cobb’s record is, no active player is ranked in the top 100 all-time in terms of career batting average.

There are a lot of ways to sum up the career of Ty Cobb. Aside from the Hall of Fame placement, the MVP trophy, and the triple crown he also has sitting on his mantle, Cobb was excellent at getting a hit. On two separate occasions, Cobb batted over .400, something that hasn’t been done in decades.

Unless players start valuing hits over home runs, no one will ever catch Cobb and his outrageous batting average.
