Did you know that NOT ONE active player at the Major League level has a career strikeout percentage (criteria: 1,000 games played & 1,000 at-bats) low enough to qualify them for the Top 100?
If you were to reverse the order of this list and still require one-hundred (100) single season games played and one-hundred (100) at-bats, the Major League / American League leader for worst strikeout percentage belongs to Melvin Nieves who had 43.7% in 1997. The National League leader is Dave Kingman who had 40.0% in 1973.
Does strikeout percentage truly measure a player's ability to make contact with the ball? Does it effectively rank some of the greatest single season contact hitters? Share your thoughts on Baseball Fever.
