What is Banjo Hitter?

A baseball hitter with low power.

Sporting Charts explains Banjo Hitter

The derogatory term “Banjo hitter” describes a batter with low power who does not get many extra-base hits, and whose hits are most often bloopers or ground balls through the infield. For this reason, the Banjo hitter is likely to have a lower slugging percentage. With the advent of power baseball players, Banjo hitters at the major league level are less common, as those players who can get by on defense alone are not as desired.

Also known as a “Punch & Judy” hitter.
