More about Team Strikeouts Thrown Per 9 Innings

With the recent overall increase in strikeouts throughout the game this figure has naturally gone up in recent years. Team leaders in this category are almost equally likely to come from either the National or American Leagues, as some teams have implemented organizational philosophies to stockpile their pitching staffs with flamethrowers who are more likely to accumulate strikeouts. Some teams feel that the more strikeouts they can count on from their pitchers means fewer balls hit into play, which for reasons having to do with little more than luck can turn into more base hits.
