Whitey Alperman spent all four years of his Major League career with the Brooklyn Superbas. He was a light hitting second baseman and the ultimate Baseball trivia question. Who has the lowest single-season walk ratio of the 20th century?
It's Whitey Alperman.
In his last big league season, in 1909, he received only 2 walks in 442 plate appearances. The oddest stat of all, though, is that he got hit more than he walked in his entire career. He got hit a total of 36 times versus only 30 career walks in 1,758 plate appearances.
