The best batter in the National League in 2020 was Steve Winter of Colorado.
He earned the batting title with 194 hits in 594 at-bats for a .327 average, outpacing all his peers.
Playing in 156 games, the 28-year-old left fielder also chalked up 42 doubles, 3 triples, 14 home runs, 78 RBIs and scored 92 runs.
This is Winter’s second consecutive batting title. He won the American League title last season, hitting .325 with Tampa Bay.
In the American League, 25-year old Anthony Kerr’s .345 batting average finished at the top.
On the year, Kerr collected 168 hits, 28 doubles, 6 triples and 4 home runs for the year. In 119 games Kerr totaled 55 RBIs and scored 78 runs.
Kerr was moved into the #2 spot in the Angels batting order early in the season, a spot where he went on to hit .362 in 370 at-bats. The only thing that slowed Kerr down this season was a strained calf muscle that kept him out of the lineup for three weeks in late July.
