Homerun vs. Basehit

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

Close your eyes. Imagine you’re at bat during the World Series, (don’t worry, I don’t watch sports so this won’t get too deep.) As the pitch comes at you it arrives in your sweet spot and meets the bat perfectly. The sound of the hit vibrates through your arms and the ball goes . . .

Just between the short stop and the left fielder???

Even if you aren’t a sports person, this isn’t what we imagine. We imagine a homer, crowds exploding and instant, fleeting fame that will go down in history.

But that isn’t what happens, in baseball or in business, or in life.

We don’t get to suck for year and years and then hit a homer that changes everything. Base hits wins ball games (read John Doherty’s post on Medium here.)

In this research by The Baseball Analyst, single base hits wins more baseball games almost twice as often as a homer.

If you swing for the fences every time you may hit a homer, but you will not win the game. If you hit a base hit every time you’re up to bat, you will.

Go hit a base hit today!
