New York Mets’ Jeff McNeil And Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu Could Bring Batting Crowns To Big Apple

There’s still plenty of baseball left to be played and the leaderboards may look a lot different at the end of September, but as of today both batting champions could end up representing New York teams. Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu, who already captured a batting title with Colorado in 2016, sits atop the AL with a .332 average while Mets’ jack-of-all-trades Jeff McNeil is hitting .331 and trails reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich by two points.

Hook 'Em: After Retiring, Troy Tulowitzki Joins Texas Longhorns Coaching Staff

Throughout his 20s, Troy Tulowitzki was one of the game’s elite players. A slick-fielding shortstop who hit for average and also had plenty of pop, the California native was on a Hall of Fame trajectory before nagging injuries derailed what still amounted to an impressive career. The 34-year-old announced his retirement last week, hanging up the spikes after playing in parts of 13 seasons.
