Mathematics: from Wait Till Next Year

Mathematics: from Wait Till Next Year

In the 1950s, many fans collected baseball cards, just like they do today. One side of these cards showed a picture of a player. The other side showed baseball statistics about that player. It is easy to compute baseball statistics using some basic math skills. See page 861 of your textbook to learn how to compute a player's batting average, and visit the sites below for more on baseball stats.
