Latest MLB Leaders (March 28th-July 31st)

With the first four months of the 2012 MLB season in the books I thought I’d take the first day of the August to recap the season thus far.

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 leads that particular category. I’m planning on posting an entry like this on the first day of each month. (That would make 2 more of these if you’re keeping score at home.)
