Best Answer

If you mean in a career, nobody has remotely approached it. His .366 LIFETIME batting average has been bested for ONE YEAR in either league only twelve times in the last fifty years.

Cobb never held the record for highest batting average in a season. It was set by Hugh Duffy at .440 in 1894, and it is inconceivable to me that it will ever be broken.
