Latest MLB Leaders (March 28th-May 31st)

With the first two months of the 2012 MLB season in the books I thought I’d take the first day of the June to recap the season thus far.

Instead of talking about the events that have taken place so far this year, I decided to make a list of different categories and beside them name the player(s) that lead that particular category. I did something similar last year, but not until September. I’m planning on posting an entry like this on the first day of each month. (That would make 4 more of these if you’re keeping score at home.)

The following lists are categorized into hitting and pitching, but NOT AL or NL:
