I think this question is a matter of personal interpretation, however... For a pitcher, typically the ERA, or Earned Run Average, is the given the first look. The ERA corresponds to the number of earned runs given up based upon a complete nine inning game. Every run that scores though is not necessarily considered "earned". For example, if a batter reaches base on a fielding error, that base runner, if he scores, is not counted against the pitcher as an earned run. For a batter, typically the BA, or batting average, is given the most weight. Batting average is simply calculated by taking the number of hits divided by the number of at bats. Again, like the ERA, not every "appearance" is considered an at bat. As an example, if a batter walks, it is not counted as an at bat for that hitter.
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.
Its around .250 to .280 it depends what division mostly though.
about .280 batting average with about 15 home runs and 65 RBI's
No that is how much they hit in decimal.
400 is good
Because it measures the averages of a collection of data
Well I have played baseball for many years and I always enjoy running bases, talking with friends, pitching, hitting it is all amazing in an amazing sport in my opinion one of the best. But if I has to choose on pone thing about baseball that is my favorite it would be...probably running bases and being aggressive and stealing when your coach tells you not to. :)
Baseball is very important in the world, it is the most popular sport in homes across the world.
According to batting averages it is Albert Pujols
the catcher is the most important player i think the pitcher or the whole team all togehter is one important "player"
Jackie's most important goals were to play baseball and to help everyone to become equal.
No, this would be too complicated and umpires are usually not consistent on most occasions.
Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson
