The Best Major League Baseball players bat .300-.350 in any given season
In other words no amount of training, film study, repetitive drills, sign stealing, or even taking HGH or steroids will stop even the best of the best from making an out at least 65% of the time.

It's similar to being a Rideshare Driver. I don't care how clean your car is, how much friendly small talk you can bring up, how smooth of a ride you provide, whether you provide a phone charger or not, or whether you play good music you will not be tipped on well over 50% of your rides. Since mid November I started back doing this gig. Since then I've done 262 Trips and I've been tipped on 77 of those trips. That's a .293 batting average. The average Tip amount for me was $3.

Post your batting average

But not doing them or even enough of them will dramatically lower your average.

But it WILL increase their slugging percentage.

Slugging percentage is total based ÷ total at bats where batting average is simply total hits ÷ at bats.

If I know what pitch is coming and or where it will be located, I increase my chance of not only a hit but good solid contact. If I'm X amount stronger, I hit the ball harder, futher, if my reflexes and eyesight are sharper, I will hit the ball more.

If I hit 20 home runs per year with a 350 ba, I'll always have a job and make decent money (by mlb standards)

If I do things you mentioned. My batting average may only slightly improve, but if I hit 20 more home runs and twice as many doubles per season, I'll be a super star with with a 2 or 3 hundred million dollar contract.


I believe you can affect the amount you are tipped by doing simple things. Just being friendly and personable is, in my opinion, not only the easiest but the most effective

Maybe 20% overall. I guess I'm Michael Jordan when he played baseball. Although I don't know his stats off the top of my head.

Mine was .385 last week which prompted me to see what the previous week averages were like. One week was disgustingly awful which kind of balanced out my excellent weeks.
