These are, as best as I’m able to calculate, the pitching totals for non-pitchers in MLB from 1946-2006.
IP H HR BB SO ERA BFP HBIP lgHBIP 313.2 370 44 206 139 6.51 1505 .298 .278
Now it’s possible I screwed up with database and don’t have the right numbers, but I looked it over and double checked it and it looks right. Anyone who wants to double check can do so.
So in general, position players were about .020 worse than league average on hits per balls in play.
While that .278 for a league average might seem low, remember that the average in this stat jumped up in 1993 and stayed up.
