Team Hit By Pitch Per Game: 2015 MLB Season

Team Hit By Pitch Per Game measures the average number of times on a per game basis that a batter on the team is hit by a pitch, which results in the batter being awarded first base. Hit By Pitches is largely a fluke statistic and will often show randomness from one season to the next.

More about Team Hit By Pitch Per Game

There are some players in the mode of Craig Biggio or Shane Victorino who are known to have the ability to “draw” a hit by pitch, largely by crowding the plate and/or failing to make any real effort to get out of the way of a pitch anywhere on the inside part of the plate, however most players do not display a consist ability to do this year after year. It is not a bad skill for individual players to have, though there are generally not any teams who have a reputation for being able to be hit by a pitch throughout their lineup. Similar to the statistic of team triples per game, this number can be inflated by one or two players who have been known to shake off a few bruises.
