Re: Monday 8-27-12 Minor-League Updates
I noticed that Josh Fellhauer is currently leading the Southern League in BA at .317. Qualifications are listed as 2.7 PA's for each game played by his team. On that basis he would qualify for the batting title even if he does not have another plate appearance. Is the qualifying number 2.7 or is it 3.1 like the major leagues? I can see the rationale for a lower number in the minor leagues as PA's tend to be more spread among the players and good players are not as likely to remain within the league for the entire season.
