The five best hitting seasons in Texas Rangers history
1. 2010 Josh Hamilton: 170 OPS+
Stats: 133 Games, 186 Hits, 32 Home Runs, 100 RBIs, .359 BA, .411 OBP, .633 SLG, 1.044 OPS, 170 OPS+
The fact that Hamilton achieved these numbers in only 133 games is astounding.
To nobody’s surprise, the man that won the 2010 MVP award, who was called “the Natural” holds statistically the best hitting season in Rangers history, as he also had the highest batting average in team history and the 2nd highest WAR ever recorded by a Ranger.
It’s fitting that 2010 was also the year of the Rangers’ first ever World Series appearance. Hamilton’s magical run in 2010 will definitely be remembered, and it’s indisputably best offensive season in Rangers history.
