Reply to "Batting average over .700!"

I wish the boy well, but when I looked a bit into that team, I found what I usually find when I read stories like this one. On the team he’s on, here’s the top 7 BA’s for regulars.

.733
.600
.526
.526
.524
.435
.400

That’s all well and good, but this is a team with a team BA that’s .433 but hasn’t won a single league game, 0-4, and is 4-5 overall. The team in 1st at 4-0 has a team BA of .312, and the team in 3rd at 2-2 is batting .310. Without looking any further, I’m gonna guess there’s some scoring being done that is maybe a bit “hinky”.

What’s too bad is, I’m gonna guess he’s likely a much above average hitter on a team playing against average HS competition, and with good scoring and the reporting of all games, would still be batting .450-.500. But someone doesn’t think that’s very good, and is giving him a teeny weeny bit of assistance with a pencil.

But its all good. He’ll move on to the next level and what will be will be.
