Meaning of Batting Average (AVG)

Meaning of Batting Average (AVG)


Meaning of AVG in Baseball

AVG stands for “batting average” and it’s a universal tool to measure a baseball hitter’s success. It is displayed as a number between 0 (which is displayed like this: .000) and 1 (which is displayed like this: 1.000). To give you a “mental picture”, you should know that the average batter has an AVG of about .260. A really good hitter could reach up to .300 and only one man in all baseball history has achieved over .400 throughout a full season, his name was Ted Williams and he batted .406 back in 1941.

.400 means the batter hit 4 hits every 10 at-bats.

AVG or batting average is a very useful tool to have clarity about how good your favorite hitters truly are, however, keep in mind that it doesn’t take into account the number of times a batter reaches the base due to “walks” or “hit-by-pitches”, also, it doesn’t take into account the “hit type”, meaning, if the hit was a double, triple or a home run, where in theory, the home run should be more valuable, right?

In order to compensate the fact that one single measurement such as AVG doesn’t give you a full picture, you should always use a combination of tools, for instance, look at the AVG and the RBI together.
