Phillies notes

The Phillies have hit more batters in franchise history than any other team with a total of 4,246 but they've only hit Craig Biggio 14 times. Biggio accounts for just 0.33% of the Phillies total hit batters, which is the third lowest of any franchise. The Braves have hit Biggio with just 0.2% of their batter-plunking pitches, or if you like ratios, the Braves have hit 510 other batters for every time they've plunked Biggio.

PHI4246140.33%
CHC3894190.49%

In the years Biggio has been playing, the Phillies are 4th. Biggio plunks account for 1.63% of the batters they've hit over that span.

I think you forgot a team with less Biggio plunks. Starts with a Houston and ends with an Astros. ;)
