From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of All-American Girls Professional Baseball League players who posted the best offensive marks in the history of the circuit.

Incidentally, the relatively low batting averages for many players reflect mainly the high quality of the AAGPBL pitchers, rather than a lack of skills by the hitters.
