In 1968, also known to baseball fans as “Year Of The Pitcher”, Carl Yastrzemski of the Boston Redsox, won the batting title with a .301 average. He was the only player that year to have a batting average over .300. To this day, it’s still the lowest batting average to ever win a batting title in Major League Baseball. On the flip side of that, Ty Cobb holds the record for the highest batting average over a three year span. He averaged .408 from 1911 to 1913.
