2014 MLB Leaders (March 22nd – September 28th)

The 2014 Major League Baseball regular season is in the books. Starting in Australia and ending six months later, this year was one of the most exciting seasons in recent history. But before things begin to heat up with the postseason starting on Tuesday (I’ll be posting my playoff predictions either tomorrow or early Tuesday), I wanted to do one final “latest leaders” post to finalize the season leaders in nearly every hitting and pitching category imaginable.
