Actual contact percentages don't exist for players as far back as Stargell or Parker. But here you go anyway. This is the actual stat that you want.
2012 Viciedo- 75.4%
Prince effing Fielder is at 77.4% for his career
Joey Votto is at 78%
Josh Hamilton is at 72.4%
Adrian Gonzalez is at 78%
Curtis Granderson is at 76.8%
For comparison, Robinson Cano and Albert Pujols both sit in the high 80s for their career. Make what you want of it.
3% difference. Big whoop.
Thank you, come again.
