  • The chart here illustrates why batted ball data is highly relevant.
    • The averages are from the 2014 MLB season.

    • Line Drives >> Fly Balls > Ground Balls
    • While fly balls most often lead to homers, the line drive is easily the most productive type of hit.

Runs Per Out 

NOTE:  This is a fluid number that changes every year

  • LD – 1.26
  • FB – 0.13
