Best Answer

The most important stat in Baseball is on base percentage also known as .OBP. It shows how often a batter reaches base. Joe Mauer had the highest on base percentage in 09', at .444. That means he reached base almost 4.5 times for every 10 at bats, The highest on base percentage in history for one season was set by Ted William. It was .553, according to World Baseball Almanac's website. The reason this statistic is so important is because it shows how often you have helped your team, and given them a chance to bat you in.
