HS Stats don't mean much and it won't take long on this site to find that out.


For example, a single 3-4 in a 12 game sample distorts the numbers.  Assume about 40 AB's and in the other 36 has 12 hits for .333 BA.  Add in the 3-4 and you are at .400.  If it came against bad pitching even more so.


Hitting .300 in HS isn't that big of a deal.  Then there is this...who's keeping the book?  Change a few errors into hits and you get crazy stuff.

Just thought it ironic that you seem to slam showcase teams and your screen name is "showcaseNOVA".

Where am I slamming showcase teams? 

My screen name has nothing to do with any showcase or travel programs. I just want you 757 know it alls that there is high school baseball in the northern part of the state.

-          Stats are stats are stats…..HS coaches “fudge” them but showcase programs fudge them just as well. I’ve seen respectable showcase programs advertise a kid as a 6.5 runner then the same kid is consistently 4.4+ home to first, another kid will be advertised as 90-92 on the FB but reality is 86-88 occasionally eclipsing the 90 mark. Bottom line generally the stats get “fluffed” because the kid is stud/projectable/legit/pick and adjective. As for HS specific, I’ve seen stats go both ways…kids who hit .400 in HS but can’t eclipse .200 in showcase I’ve also seen kids who hit well over .300 in showcase who hit below .300 in HS. I think you have to put it context and DON’T be so quick to jump on the o’l interweb and immediately discredit stats….are we that short sighted?
