3. I would have thought Teddy Ballgame too.

The closest he came to Gehrig was in 1941 when he had 37 HRs and 27 SOs. A disparity of 10 versus 18 for Gehrig.

6. Forgetting Home Runs, But Just Low K's

Joe Sewell for the 1932 Yankees. He struck out 3 times (yes, 3) in 576 plate appearances.

For his entire career he only struck out once every 73 plate appearances and once went 115 games without striking out.

He had over 8300 plate appearances, but only struck out 114 times.

Was a .312 hitter for his 14 year career, but not a bopper. He only had 49 HRs.
