Frequently Asked Questions:

What is considered a good At Bats per Strikeout ratio?

In modern baseball, an AB/SO ratio of 5 or higher is generally considered very good. Elite contact hitters might have ratios of 8 or higher, while power hitters often have lower ratios.

How has the average At Bats per Strikeout ratio changed over time?

The league-wide AB/SO ratio has generally decreased over time, especially in recent years. This is due to an increased emphasis on power hitting and a higher acceptance of strikeouts in exchange for more extra-base hits.

Does a high At Bats per Strikeout ratio always indicate a good hitter?

Not necessarily. While a high AB/SO ratio suggests good contact skills, it doesn't account for the quality of contact or power. Some excellent hitters, particularly power hitters, may have lower AB/SO ratios but still be very valuable due to their ability to hit for extra bases.
