As we hit the home stretch of the season, we’ll be looking back at some of the best years that Mets players had in a few different statistical categories. We’ll start with batting average in this week’s Mind Boggler by asking you to name every Met to hit at least .300 in a season. To qualify for this list, the player needed to have enough plate appearances (502 in a 162-game season) to qualify for the batting title.
Michael Conforto leads qualified Mets hitters in batting average this year. Before his shoulder injury, the outfielder hit .279—not a great average, but far ahead of second-place-finisher Jay Bruce’s .256. Among all position players on the 2017 Mets, Yoenis Cespedes leads the pack with a .292 average in the 81 games he played.
