Paul Konerko is known more for his bat than his speed, which makes his remarkable hitting prowess even more impressive. According to statistics compiled by the White Sox's media relations department, Konerko ranks at or among the top hitters in the American League without the aid of infield hits. Konerko entered play Tuesday night with a league leading .395 batting average despite having only one infield hit - at Cleveland on April 9 - among his 66 hits.
Nothing cheap about Konerko's league-leading batting average
