Peter - you got two correct answers:

Rollins set the record for ABs in a season with 716 in 2007

Hank Aaron, indeed, stole 31 bases in '63, second to Maury's 40.

Randall- You were correct in recalling that Juan Samuel had 701 ABs in 1984.


As 'Tennis13' stated, the last one will be even more difficult.

Impress your friends and neighbors...keep working on it.

I know Kirby Puckett was close a few times. I just don't remember if he ever had 700 AB's.

Oh, man, I wanted to see if someone would get that. It was so random. I was curious of the amount of collective brainpower here.

Scott- the easiest way to find something fairly obscure like that is to go BBR, click on the leader board, then year-to-year-top-ten.

Now that my 'secret' is out, I'll bet we have a lot more good, if short-lasting trivia questions in the future.

It also helped, in this case, to focus on two stats that don't seem to get enough attention these days....unlike exit velocity and launch angle...neither of which, I might add, are not recorded in mass as yet.

Drat, I'd have guessed Posednik. He was always running when I watched a Brewers game.

Ben Sheets was tremendous that season. He was finally healthy. The Brewers sucked, as did his win-loss record because he got no run support. He struck out 264 batters and walked only 32.
