And the MLB batting average in 2020 was .245. And in 2019 there were 25 shutouts in MLB - total.The MLB batting average in 1968 was .237
This is not a misprint
Still think 13 shutouts in a season is awfully damn impressive. You have to go back to 1916 and Pete Alexander to find a pitcher with more in a season.
