Batting averages are so misleading – let’s compare a 300 hitter to a 250 hitter – compréhension!
At this partie in the season, late July, most temps complet players have approximately 400 at bats, not including walks. A typical originel league player usually has around 600 abs at the end of the season.
Let’s compare a player’s number of hits to see how much difference there is between different average hitters. You might just be surprised at the results.
400 AB .300 Avg 120 Hits 600 AB. 300 average 180 hits
.250 average 100 hits .250 average 150 hits.
.200 average 80 hits .200 average 120 hits.
Since the baseball season is embout 6 months élevé that would equal 26 weeks. The difference between a .300 hitter and a .250 hitter is only 30 hits over the circonvolution of the season, which is only a difference of 1 hit per week. With players playing 6 or 7 games per week, averaging 3+ at bats per game (minus walks), we’re talking embout 20-25 AB’s per week. A hit difference per week really isn’t that big. If you compare this time of year, (end of July), the difference is even less. If you want to take it to the next level…let’s say a .350 hitter, who would be considered the best of the best, you’re talking embout 2 more hits per week when comparing a .350 hitter vs. 250 Hitter So the next time someone here belittles a .250 hitter, think again.
