Default Tuesday Trivia: .300 average in 4 Leagues

Name the only player (that I am aware) that had a career batting average of .300 or more in 4 different circuits/Major Leagues?

EDITED: I am talking about early Leagues, like before the AL/NL, not Negro Leagues or summer leagues or PCL.

That's a great guess, but I think Irvin only played in 1 Negro League (National Negro League II).

But to clarify, I wasn't including the Negro Leagues.

But if someone knows of a Negro League Player that accomplished the feat, I'd be very interested in knowing who he is.

Ahh gotcha, what were you including as circuits? Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican winter?

Sorry, on the SABR page I was looking at, they referred to pre AL/NL Leagues as circuits, but I think it would be clearer to just call them Leagues.

I recall this trivia question some time in the last few years...as I said...I recall the question...

I peeked...thinking it may have happened in the 19th century, but no joy.


Give it up...

Peter, you are correct!

Hugh Duffy compiled a .300+ career batting average in four different Major Leagues: National League (.326), Players League (.320), American Association (.336), and American League (.302).

Other factoids: Hugh Duffy's wife passed away at age 25 in 1894. A grief-stricken Duffy got an understandably late start on the 1894 campaign. But by the time that it was over, Duffy had batted .440, still the all-time major-league single-season batting average high while leading the league in base-hits (237), doubles (51), home runs (18), extra-base hits (85), total bases (374), and OPS (1.196), while finishing second in RBIs (145), fourth in runs scored (160), and ninth in stolen bases (48).

In April 1945, Duffy was elected to the Hall of Fame via selection by the Veterans Committee. That same month, he presided over the dubious tryout that the Red Sox accorded Negro Leagues star Jackie Robinson (and Marvin Williams of the Philadelphia Stars, and outfielder Sam Jethroe of the Cleveland Buckeyes).
