Latest MLB Leaders (March 31st-August 31st)

With the first five months of the 2013 MLB season in the books, I thought I’d take the first day of the new month to recap the season thus far. It’s been exciting, as well as disappointing — depending on how you look at it, and who you’re rooting for.

Instead of talking about the events that have taken place so far this year, I decided to make a list of different categories and beside them name the player(s) that lead that particular category. (I’m planning on posting one more of these after the last day of the season.)

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