I haven't seen it for a number of years but there was a website that kept track of hitters' batting averages for each home plate umpires for the season. The home plate umpires will average around 40 games a year behind the plate.

Does anyone keep track of this anymore? The one year I remember there was a large gap between the highest and lowest batting average.

Baseball Reference keeps track of umpire records for pitchers, but not for hitters.

I couldn't find it baseball-reference. . There are other umpire stats websites but I haven't found one that list batting averages when behind the plate. They used to have it on some gambling site.
