How making outs can help you win

The main thing any hitter does is make outs. Take one of my favorite hitters of all-time, Tony Gywnn; Tony had 9,288 at-bats and 3,141 hits. If I did the math right, that means this Hall of Fame hitter made 6,147 outs. Gywnn’s 162-game average is 617 at-bats per year, so if you put all his unsuccessful at-bats together, one of the best hitters in the history of the game spent about a decade doing nothing but making outs.
