Hit distribution 1990-2013.

Allan Huber "Bud" Selig became acting commissioner in 1992, then actual commissioner in 1998.  During Selig's tenure use of performance enhancing drugs (PED) became prevalent, especially after the work stoppage of 1994-1995.  Home runs increased and home run records were set.  Then anti-PED policies resulted in less hitting in recent years.  Here are charts and numbers for the American League, also viewable at this link:






Charts were derived from data derived from the Lahman database.
- 1Ba (1B/AB) + 2Ba (2B/AB) + 3Ba (3B/AB) + HRa (HR/AB) = BA (H/AB)
- 1B + 2B + 3B + HR = Hits
