It depends. If the player has a low batting average, it can mean that they have a high slugging average (home runs) and focus more on hitting home runs than getting on the base. It can also mean, though, that the batter just has bad contact with hitting the ball or has bad strategizing.On the other hand, if a player has a high batting average, they are most likely not a slugger and focus more on strategizing (like hitting the ball where the infielders and outfielders can't reach it before the hitter gets on base).There are exceptions, though, like Joe DiMaggio and Hank Aaron, who both had relatively high slugging averages andbatting averages.
