In 2002, he led the major leagues in batting with a .370 average. In 2004, he was the National League's top hitter with a .362 mark. In 2012, Giants catcher Buster Posey won the National League batting title with a .336 average, best in the major leagues. Interestingly, Posey's suspended teammate Melky Cabrera ended his season with a .346 average, but Major League Baseball agreed to his request not to be considered for the batting crown. Cabrera was suspended for 50 games in August 2012 after he tested positive for using a performance enhancing drug.
