Most walks by a hitter in a major league season?

2006-2017
1 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2013 76
2 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2017 68
3 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2012 67

Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2017 52

10 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2016 45
11 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2015 42

Alonso and Murphy joined with their 2017 seasons. Interesting, that while Murphy dominates the other 2006-2017 categories, he doesn’t dominate this one. In fact, he wasn’t on the list at all until last season!

Some “new” names on here- Grubb, Hoiles… and Kruk’s 1993 season… as a Philly fan, I have positive memories of that one (even if the whole team was on steroids) (Allegedly)
