Line Drive Rates - FakeTeams

Line Drive Rates - FakeTeams: "What may be a little more surprising is how unstable line drive rates can be. According to the Hardball Times, there is some correlation between hitters’ line drive rates from season to season, but not much. So let’s take a look at a couple players who have very low line drive rates (and low BABIP’s, to show they aren’t getting lucky on ground balls and fly balls, either) and figure that if they simply regress to the mean, they ought to play at a higher level than they are now.
It’s worth noting that average line drive rate is in the range of 19%."
