The Numbers behind Slugging Percentage
Slugging Percentage is an important metric, but sometimes it is too simple of a platform to properly express hitting composition. Let's look at how the teams are ranked from a percent of extra base hits perspective. The table below the concentration how hits when they occur; this stat does not account for total at-bats; the more a team gets up the more runs they can produce. No metric is all inclusive, and neither is this one; though it gives us another angle to look at how teams hit.
