Unusual baseball statistics

Dan Brouthers, 1B, Detroit Wolverines.

1886 – 11 HR, 72 RBI, .377 avg. Also: 40 doubles, 17 triples

1887 – 12 HR, 101 RBI, .228 avg. Also: 36 doubles, 20 triples.

1888 – 9 HR, 66 RBI, .307 avg. Also: 33 doubles, 11 triples.

To go from a .377 average with 72 RBI to a .228 average with 101 RBI is unusual.

Brouthers played 19 years, with the Trojans, Bisons, Wolverines, Beaneaters, Redstocking, Bridegrooms, Orioles, Colonels, Phillies and Giants. His lifetime batting average was .335. Brouthers was elected into the Hall of Fame in 1945.
