Everybody's Got A Record: Ralph Garr Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

Ralph won the 1974 National League batting title by hitting .353...which was great but not quite a record.  He earned his record by having 149 hits at the All-Star break.  That would have put him at a pace of hitting 298 hits which would have broken the then record of 257 by 41 hits.
