Looks like the avg MLB hitter strikes out in 19-20% of his ABs. In 550 ABs, that would be 105-110 Ks.
A little over once every 6 plate apperances.
Your graph is talking about something different than I was.
Kids, let this be proof that figures never lie, but liars always figure.
Exactly. I think.... When I said over 1 per 6 PA I misspoke though. It should have be just under
1 per 6 PA (1 per 6.03 roughly).
The AL average for SO/PA in 06 was .1623. The NL was .1736. The BB/PA was .0827 and .0857 for the AL and NL respectively.
Just for some quick averages at 4 PA per game over 162 games that would make the average AL hitter:
648 PA 54 BB 594 ABs 105 Ks
