Take a look at the career batting averages of four of the greatest baseball players of all time. In terms of the law of large numbers, what can we assume about how accurately these career averages reflect the actual abilities of the players?

A

The AVG parameter shows the success of the batting during a baseball game. Having discarded all other factors, the probability of hitting the ball with a bat is 0.5. From the law of large numbers, this parameter does not say anything about the likelihood of a successful strike during the next match. For initial attempts, the average performance may deviate strongly from the expected value, but now the value of .300 indicates that about one in three kicks is successful.
