Latest MLB Leaders (March 28th-September 30th)

With the 2012 MLB regular season beginning to wind down, I thought I’d take the first day of October to recap the season to this point.

Instead of talking about the events that have taken place this year I decided to make a list of different categories and beside them name the player(s) that leads that particular category. I’m planning on posting one final entry like this towards the end of this week–after the final regular season game has been played–so check back for that.

The following lists are categorized into hitting and pitching, but NOT AL or NL:
