Mizzou Baseball: Runs Created

Analysis of runs created in 2010 (49thstatehardball.com)
The main point I wanted to make with this table -- other than, again, giving some name-space to players who did well in limited plate appearances -- is that you can hit for a low average and still be an above-average offensive threat. Case in point: Ryan Gebhart of the Oilers' created a run every 7.04 at-bats but hit only .222, while the Fire's Will Watson created a run every 7.13 at-bats while hitting .322 (100 points better).

  1. I heard that Gebhart made the All Alaska Baseball League team as well.
