Making it in the majors: the best MLB rookie seasons

Year: 1930
Team: Boston Braves
Wally Berger already became one of the top five sluggers in baseball during his rookie year. The centerfielder hit .310/.375/.614 with 172 hits, 98 runs and 119 RBI (a rookie record). Berger also hit 38 home runs, breaking the rookie record. The record still stands today as the NL record for home runs scored by rookies, and was matched only by another player on this list, Frank Robinson, who hit 38 home runs in 1956. His RBI record for rookies stood firm until Pujols came along in 2001.
