This link is from the Richmond Braves website:
"Batting leaders" Not only is the information formatted in an incomprehensible manner, I believe it's a year old!

So, very precise, but totally inaccurate?

The column headers are totally wrong, too.

I think this may speak to the amount of traffic that the Richmond Braves website must get.

There's a lot of major league names on that list. I'm surprised, actually. Pawtucket just piggybacks on's stats service ( It's not like Richmond couldn't do the same thing (

It's neither inaccurate nor incomprehensible. Johnson really did hit 281 home runs in just 0.857 at-bats, scoring 0.85697025 runs (rounding up). It was a feat that will never be duplicated -- I can't even begin to describe the play.

I bet all those guys with 144 triples are so proud...

I always thought the IL was a pitchers league too.

Makes me proud to live in Richmond....

And if you think the site is cool, just visit the park. A couple of years ago, they had Skull Fracture Night at The Diamond. But when the concrete fell, the lucky ticketholder was not in his seat.

I was looking at the site because a friend of mine was planning to head out to The Diamond tonight.

It looks like Richmond doesn't have a lot of good players as Atlanta has stripped the roster bare.

Your friend will be very lonely. The R-Braves are in Buffalo.

I won't tell her. I'll let her find out on her own.

I emailed the R-Braves PR staff about the page. They have a canned email reply so other people must have complained.

I was told to visit

I double checked my friend's message. She is planning to go tomorrow. And the R-Braves will be home then.

Is a tragic place to be.
Must bunt triplers home.

Our own former Dodger Trinidad Hubbard accomplished the remarkable feat of hitting 129 home runs yet having only 89 RBI's.
