2000 - 2009 - At Bat Leaders
Here's the last offensive list. Admittedly, this list probably isn't the most interesting, but to make it you have to be a reasonably decent player to play everyday near the top of the lineup. Oh yeah, and playing for a team that scores lots of runs doesn't hurt either. Anyway, here's a list of the top 5 AB seasons for Brewer minor leaguers over the last 10 years:
546 - Steve Scarborough, 2001 (High Desert)
*546 - Alcides Escobar, 2008 (Huntsville)
540 - Callix Crabbe, 2004 (High Desert)
536 - Travis Hinton, 2004 (High Desert)
534 - Tony Gwynn Jr, 2004 (Huntsville)
* - Escobar also had 4 AB with the Brewers that season
