QUIZ GUIDE: (1) Park-adjusted batting average is calculated by (a) taking the player's BA, (b) dividing it by the Baseball-Reference estimate of the average position player's BA in the same ballparks, (c) then multiplying it by .264 (position players' BA from 1947-2017) to place all batting averages on the same scale. (2) Underlines indicate players short of the 3.1 PA/G required to qualify for the batting title. Their displayed BA is their adjusted BA after adding in the number of hitless at-bats needed to qualify. Answers reveal their "actual" adjusted BA.
