Greatest batting line ever?

Postby D-Trains on Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:18 pm

I am sure there have been better ones in little league or slow pitch softball. But this is absolutely bonkers for major college baseball.

1988 - WSU Cougs John Olerud as a soph.

.464/.558/.876/1.434 In 233 ABs he had 21 doubles 3 triples and 23 HRs and 81 RBIs!!!

That projects to well over 200 RBIs over 150 games. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

He could have went 0 for his next 37 and still hit .400!!!!!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Unreal.

My God! It's been 14 years since he hung up his spikes. Loved that guy.

Just glancing at B.R., I didn't know he was a cousin of Dale Sveum who played in MLB from '86 - '99. Sveum was a SS, 3B with a touch of 2B and a dash of 1B, fwiw.

Anyway, that was one hell of a batting stat line for Mr. J.O.

I just can't fathom an almost .500 BA in the Pac 10. You are talking going against the top college pitching talent on the West coast almost every game and getting hits in nearly half your ABs. Its preposterous.

Keep your eyes locked on MLB TRADE RUMORS there 'son.

I hear they're talking to him about a comeback and he's been training with Ichiro.

I assume they will be battling it out for 1st base?

When college baseball was first available on TV for me, I watched it pretty often. Pete Incaviglia, Barry Bonds, David Magadan, Roger Clemons, Bobby Thigpen were big names back then.
I recall Magadan hit over .500 to lead the entire NCAA season.
Funny how much distance Olerud put between himself and Magadan in his MLB career, even though Magadan was always a pretty good hitter.

Pete Incaviglia in 1985 at Oklahoma State had a line of
.464 /.594 /1.140 /1.734 with 21 doubles 43 HR and 143 RBI in 75 games.

Like Olerud he went straight to the Majors without playing minor league ball.
