Batting average is a statistic in cricket, baseball, and softball that measures the performance of cricket batsmen, and baseball hitters. The two statistics are related in that baseball averages are directly descended from the concept of cricket averages.
Famous quotes containing the word average:
“Its not that we want the political jobs themselves ... but they seem to be the only language the men understand. We dont really want these $200 a year jobs. But the average man doesnt understand working for a cause.”
—Jennie Carolyn Van Ness (b. c. 1890?)
