Pitches Per Plate Appearance Leaders: 2014 MLB Season

Pitches Per Plate Appearance measures the average number of pitches a hitter faces per plate appearance. Plate Appearances include any at bat, base on balls, hit by pitch, sacrifice hit, sacrifice fly and defensive interference.

More about Pitches Per Plate Appearance Leaders

Players with high pitchers per plate appearance are able to manage their plate appearances and work the count in a way to both get the ideal pitch as well as increase the total number of pitches thrown to tire the pitcher and lead them to an earlier exit.
