To qualify for the batting title, a major league player needs 3.1 plate appearances per game played. In a standard 162 game season, that comes out to 502 plate appearances.
For a pitcher to qualify to the ERA title he needs one inning per game played.
Rule 10.23a of the Official Baseball Rules: MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIPS 10.23 " To assure uniformity in establishing the batting, pitching and fielding championships of professional leagues, such champions shall meet the following minimum performance standards: (a) The individual batting champion or slugging champion shall be the player with the highest batting average or slugging percentage, provided he is credited with as many or more total appearances at the plate in League Championship games as the number of games scheduled for each club in his league that season, multiplied by 3.1 in the case of a major league player. EXCEPTION: However, if there is any player with fewer than the required number of plate appearances whose average would be the highest, if he were charged with the required number of plate appearances or official at bats, then that player shall be awarded the batting championship or slugging championship. EXAMPLE: If a major league schedules 162 games for each club, 502 plate appearances qualify (162 times 3.1 equals 502). If a National Association league schedules 140 games for each club, 378 plate appearances qualify (140 times 2.7 equals 378). Total appearances at the plate shall include official times at bat, plus bases on balls, times hit by pitcher, sacrifice hits, sacrifice flies and times awarded first base because of interference or obstruction. " To answer your question, take the number of games the team has played at the end of June and multiply by 3.1. If the player has that many total at bats, (team total games * 3.1), then he eligible to be considered in the batting title race.
There is no official minimum for the MVP award. The minimum to qualify for the batting average title is 3.1 plate appearances per game, or 502 for the season. Regarding the MVP vote, more plate appearances give a player more opportunities to establish value, but there's no specific minimum for eligibility.
The eligibility rules for rate statistics don't stipulate number of at bats, but rather plate appearances - 3.1 per game played by the team. For a standard 162 game schedule, this comes to 502.2 plate appearances, meaning the batter must have 503 plate appearances to be eligible.
However, if he went 1-1, then walked the rest of the 502 times he batted, he would still win the batting title, because he had enough plate appearances!
According to MLB, a rookie is "A player who hasn't accumulated 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in previous seasons and hasn't spent 45 or more days on 25-man active rosters, not including times when the active list is expanded to 40."
I do not believe there are any hard numbers as far as how many at bats or how many innings pitched a player must have to qualify for selection of ROY. The only qualification is what is listed above for a player to be considered a rookie.
Generally 400 but the amount has varied as the number of games played changes. For instance George Brett won the batting title with a .390 average in a strike shortened season. Nevertheless walks do not count, since they do not count as at bats. In the early 70s a player lost the batting crown with 399 at bats when 400 were required. This rule has changed however. Now, a player just short of the required at bats could ADD the number of hitless at bats (generally meaning walks) to the number of at bats which will permit the player to still win the batting crown as long as the average does not drop below the player just below him. ---- To win a batting title in MLB, a batter must have a minimum of 502 total plate appearences for the season. Yes, any at bat that results in a non-official at bat (walk, sacrifice, hit by pitch) counts towards the total number of plate appearances.
The dubious honor of the lowest batting average while still qualifying for the batting title belongs to Rob Deer. In 1991, playing for the Detroit Tigers, Deer batted .179 in 539 plate appearances.

The number of plate appearances a batter can have in a season is totally dependent upon the number of games the team plays in a season, and if a player played the entire game in each of them. In Major League Baseball, each team plays 162 games. There are a minimum of 27 plate appearances for each team, so each position in the batting order would have a minimum of three plate appearances. (However, if the home team is ahead, they do not bat in the bottom of the 9th inning, so they would have potentially fewer plate appearances in those games, but let's ignore that for this exercise.) So, if a single, individual player played all nine innings of all 162 games, and came up to bat a minimum of 3 times per game, he would have a minimum of 486 plate appearances at the end of the season. Plate appearances are not the same thing as at-bats. If the batter reaches bases on a walk or is hit by a pitch, or if he sacrifices, it is a plate appearance, but it doesn't count as an at-bat in the statistics. According to baseball-reference.com, Hank Aaron averaged 606 plate appearances and 538 at-bats a season over his 23 season career, while Cal Ripken, Jr. averaged 613 plate appearances and 550 at-bats per season over the course of his 21 season career. These guys were both iron men, and probably averaged more plate appearances than current players do, but it's a good comparison. ----------
Yes. To win a league batting title, a player must have a minimum of 502 plate appearances. If a player has 502 or more plate appearances when he is traded to the other league and winds up in 1st place in batting average for the league he was traded from, he is awarded the league title. To win an MLB (both leagues) batting title, a player must have a minimum of 502 plate appearances combined in both leagues.
