Repack Haiku #191 (Eddie Murray)

In nineteen-ninety
Led Major Leagues in batting
But didn't lead league
1990 Fleer #404 Eddie Murray
Murray hit .330 for the Dodgers in 1990, losing the NL batting title to Willie McGee by .005 points. However, McGee was traded during the season to the American League, where he only hit .274 for Oakland. That dropped McGee season average to .324, but because he had enough plate appearances with the Cardinals, he took home the NL crown.


  1. Love that piece of trivia. I'm sure Eddie was not amused.

  2. one of my great frustrations with how stats are kept, especially now with interleague play.
