There's a connection between Cecil Cooper and Jimmie Foxx. Cooper's top comp thru his age 27 season was Joe Hauser, the guy Jimmie Foxx replaced at 1st for the A's.

And launch angle!

I searched 1980 and on, the Roto Era, and since the question was BB/K ratio, I sorted on fewest BB. So Anderson walked 15 times and struck out 109 or something like that. By far the greatest BB/K ratio of anyone in the list.

Jimmie Foxx's BB/K ratio was about 1:1. Not the same as Anderson's 7:1 or so.

Before the Roto Era? I don't know. I didn't look there. Too many asterisks (dead ball, Babe Ruth, live ball, people of color, WWII, expansion, to name a few).

No.  I'm not sure what Peter's search criteria were.  Jimmie Foxx hit .338 in 1936 with 119 Ks and 105 BB.  That's the most K's .330 or higher in early baseball.  Duke Snider did it 1953 and 1954.

Joe Torre did in 1971.

When you sort Peter's list under Tim Anderson by year, Cecil Cooper, Miguel Dilone and Mickey Rivera are at the top.

Does this mean that no one who hit .330 or higher before 1980 had more strikeouts than walks?
