There is no universally accepted minimum number of games or at bats for this distinction. Baseball Almanac only recognized players with a minimum of 50 At Bats, and therefore recognizes Pepper Martin (who played for the Cards in the 1928, 1931, and 1934 World Series) and Paul Molitor (1982 Brewers, 1993 Blue Jays). They each went 23 for 55 for a .418 average.

Baseball Digest required a minimum of 20 games, and therefore recognized Lou Brock, who hit .391 (87 at-bats, 34 hits) for the Cardinals in 1964, 1967 and 1968.

The highest batting average in a series is held by Billy Hatcher, who hit .750 in the Reds' sweep of the A's in 1990. The record in series of 5 games or more .500, and is shared by many players.
