Our Seventy-first Year
The Oldest Continuously Active Contest in Sport



See the ball, catch the ball

Robert Wiltman wins the 2021 300 Club Batting Contest with .3014 Average in a year unprecedented for injuries, COVID, and Batter Disqualifications; Bob Mills wins pitchers, G. Glidden wins homers. Nobody picked Perez for RBIs or Marte for SBs; Mike Langen wins Dimaggio Prize. Thanks to all for playing in 2021; we'll all choose healthier Batters next year!


On the last day of the 2021 regular season, Yankees' SS Gio Urshela made a dramatic -- and life-threatening -- catch on a popup by Rays LF Austin Meadows with 2 outs in the top of the 6th. Urshela, running full speed, made the catch and then flew down the concrete steps into the Rays' dugout, emerging moments later with only bumps and bruises -- and the ball. (Photo: Getty Images)
For 300 Club Members, it was a challenging year, with more players missing time due to injury and illness than any time in memory, resulting in many players failing to reach the MLB minimum 502 Plate Appearances. Hence, for the first time ever, less than half of Member Ballots qualified for the Batting Contest (however, ALL ballots qualify for the other contests). While MLB only needs 2 batters (one from each league) to qualify for the MLB batting titles, 300 Club Members must choose 13 batters, and hope that 10 qualify -- proving what we all know: Our Club is one tough contest. See you in 2022!
