Best Answer

The last player was Ted Williams who hit .407 in 1953. Williams also hit .400 in 1952 and .406 in 1941. And despite that, he also missed five of his prime years during World War II.

This answer is not only INCORRECT, it is also misleading!

By the logic here, David Ortiz was the last MLB player to hit .400 in the 2013 World Series!

Williams hit .400 in 1952 IN SIX GAMES! In 1953 he played in 37 GAMES!

Hideki Matsui hit .615 in 6 games in 2009 and Big Papi hit .688 in six games this year!

The last MLB player to hit .400 for a full season was Ted "Teddy Ballgame" Williams in 1941 when he hit .406.

The last National League player to hit .400 was "Memphis" Bill Terry who hit .401 in 1930.
