So swing at pitch you have 2.5/10 chance of hitting well with no strikes? You can still swing at that pitch with 2 strikes and have the same chance of hitting it well...Nobody is saying to take good pitches to hit..just pitches that you have a low probability of hitting well (every hitter has holes..)IMO, most players would be better off being more aggressive in the box. Vlad had more first pitch HRs than Barry Bonds. Rickey Henderson rarely took pitches even as a leadoff hitter. I see too many players allowing the pitcher to get ahead. I rarely see a softball player that is too aggressive. Most hitters are "shopping" for a good pitch and they rarely get one.
