LeMahieu won the 2016 NL batting title with a .348 average for Colorado. Ed Delahanty hit .410 for the Philadelphia Phillies to win the NL championship in 1899; he is credited by some researchers with the 1902 AL championship at .376, while others accept Nap Lajoie as winning that title at

Here's a look at the American League and National League leaders for the major statistical categories at the conclusion of the 2020 regular season:

Home Runs

American League

Voit was the only player to reach the 20-homer plateau during the shortened campaign and did so quite resoundingly, leading the AL with a .333 ISO. Meanwhile, star teammates Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge combined to hit a mere 13 homers.

National League

Ozuna broke a tie with Tatis on the final day of the season to take sole possession of the NL crown. The 29-year-old is headed for free agency this winter and appeared in all 60 games for the Atlanta Braves this season.

RBIs

American League

No one in baseball cashed runs in more prolifically this year than Abreu. The slugger became the first player in the AL to lead the league in RBIs in back-to-back years since David Ortiz managed the feat in 2004 and 2005.

If Abreu - who didn't miss a game this year - maintained this pace over a full slate, the first baseman would have racked up 162 RBIs, the most in a single season since Manny Ramirez had 165 in 1999.

National League

Ozuna not only takes home the Senior Circuit's home run crown, but he also collected the most RBIs. Interestingly, only one of them came during the 29-9 rout of the Miami Marlins on Sept. 9.

Batting Average

American League

LeMahieu became the first player ever to win a batting title in both the AL and NL after also claiming the crown in 2016 as a member of the Colorado Rockies.

The 32-year-old joins New York Yankees legends Mickey Mantle (1956), Joe DiMaggio (1939), and Lou Gehrig (1934) to win a batting title with the club.

National League

The 21-year-old Soto continues to stake his claim as one of the best hitters in baseball. Due to a positive COVID-19 test early in the year, Soto was held to 47 games but will finish with the highest batting average in the NL as well as the highest on-base percentage and slugging percentage in either league.

Hits

American League

The Chicago White Sox are headed to the postseason for the first time since Abreu joined the club, and the first baseman's contributions played an integral role in making that happen.

National League

Turner has always seemed to be on the cusp of greatness, and the leadoff man broke through in a big way this year. Finishing as the overall leader in hits, the shortstop also posted career bests in each of the triple-slash categories.

OPS

American League

Another crown for LeMahieu. The star second baseman has turned into a key player for the Yankees but will be eligible for free agency this winter.

National League

Soto finished with a .490 OBP, .695 slugging, and 1.185 OPS - the highest such percentages with at least 195 plate appearances since Barry Bonds in 2004, according to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports.

Stolen Bases

American League

When you're as fast as Mondesi, the best anyone else can do - including second place - is only half as good. Margot, Moore, and Merrifield all go home with a share of silver.

National League

Story is no stranger to running after swiping more than 20 bags in each of the past two seasons. However, stealing bases at this rate is a new trick for the Rockies shortstop. If Story maintained this pace over a full season, he would have eclipsed 40 steals.

Runs

American League

A late-season charge from Ramirez made the race interesting, and the Cleveland Indians third baseman finished tied for first with Anderson. The White Sox shortstop had the distinct advantage of hitting atop a powerful lineup that featured the MLB leader in RBIs.

It's hard to believe Freeman started summer camp away from the team, as he battled COVID-19 and literally prayed for his life due to a very high fever. Now, he's the only baseball player in 2020 to score more than 50 runs, and he could win the NL MVP.

Doubles

American League

Hernandez landed a one-year deal with the Indians late in December. Now, after playing a key role for Cleveland, the second baseman should have more suitors.

National League

This is the four-time All-Star's second time leading the league in doubles after hitting 44 in 2018.

WAR

(Prior to Sunday's games)

American League

Ramirez wasn't atop the WAR leaderboard until very late in the season, but he was so dominant over the final two weeks that he completely pulled away from the field.

National League

This was Tatis' title to lose through August. But, due to a combination of his own slump and Freeman's incredible and unrelenting pace, the young shortstop finishes second.

Wins

American League

Bieber was almost a sure thing whenever he took the mound over his 12 starts. He won his first seven decisions and still posted a quality start in his lone loss. Gonzales' seven victories for a 27-33 club are particularly impressive.

National League

It appeared Darvish was cooked after an injury-plagued 2018 to kick off his Chicago Cubs tenure, but he's righted the ship in a big way. Fried might have given him a run had he not missed time with back spasms.

ERA

American League

This was another category in which Bieber paced the league, and it wasn't that close. The White Sox did, however, get more than they bargained for from Keuchel after inking him in the offseason.

National League

If anyone is going to rival Darvish in the Cy Young race, it's Bauer. He's hitting free agency at the height of his powers and should command a lofty contract. Lamet was one of the nicest success stories this season before leaving his final start with a biceps issue. Here's hoping it's not serious.

WHIP

American League

The Los Angeles Dodgers were so deep that they kept bouncing Maeda between the rotation and bullpen, ultimately leading to him being sent to the Minnesota Twins in a trade. It worked out great for both the pitcher and his new team, as he even surpassed Bieber in his ability to suppress baserunners.

National League

DeGrom will likely miss out on winning his third consecutive Cy Young Award, but it wasn't due to a poor season. He's one of the only reasons the New York Mets were still in the playoff hunt entering the final week.

Strikeouts

American League

It was pure dominance from Bieber, though Giolito was no slouch, either. He struck out 13 in consecutive outings in late August, including his incredible no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

National League

DeGrom struck out batters at the best clip of his career (13.76 per nine innings) and recorded double-digit punchouts in five of his 12 starts. The only qualified starter in the majors with a better K/9 was Bieber.

Saves

American League

Hand led the majors in saves, but Hendriks had the edge in WAR. Hendriks threw more innings (25 1/3 versus 20 2/3) and had better strikeout and walk rates. He also converted 14 straight save opportunities after blowing his first attempt on Opening Day. But Hand and Colome did admirable jobs keeping the ball in the park as neither allowed a home run all season.

National League

Hader got the job done, but he wasn't as crisp as in the past due to a career-high 4.47 walks per nine innings. Still, he didn't allow a single hit over his first 12 appearances. All four teams represented in this chart reached the postseason.
