Why Reliance on Highest Batting Average is not good
A huge difference exists for the highest batting average at the youth levels and the higher levels of baseball. At the professional levels, I am extremely impressed with the highest batting average, but at the youth levels it is irrelevant. Of course, when I relay that idea to parents and players, they look at me as though I am crazy. It takes some convincing.
