    Artie Wilson, the last .400 hitter, passed away at the age of 90...

    Baseball enthusiasts who are old enough to remember recognize Wilson as the most infallible of leadoff hitters and speediest of base runners. In 1948, playing for Birmingham, he finished the season with a .402 batting average. He also more than held his own as a fielder, starting at shortstop in the Negro Leagues all-star game for several years.
