On July 26, 1975, Bill Madlock went 6-for-6 at Wrigley Field as the Cubs lost to the New York Mets, 9-8, in ten innings. Madlock’s hits consisted of five singles and a triple, and that year, he would go on to win his first (of four) batting title with a .354 average.

Forgot what a good players he was, doesn’t get much credit. Thanks for this.
Four batting titles is certainly nothing to sneeze at (among his other accomplishments). Agreed, he deserves more recognition!
A good case could be made for the Hall of Fame for Madlock.
