    Regular season

    The 1922 season was one of the productive seasons in the career of Rogers Hornsby. He became the only player in history to hit over 40 home runs and bat over .400 in the same season. Hornsby won the triple crown, leading the league in almost every batting category including batting average (.401), home runs (42, a National League record at the time), RBI (152), slugging average (.722, another record at the time), on-base percentage (.459), doubles (46), hits (250, again the highest in National League history to that point), and runs scored (141). His 450 total bases was the highest mark for any National League player during the 20th century. Hornsby also produced in the field, leading the league in putouts, double plays, and fielding percentage.
