Contact hitter

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ichiro Suzuki is one of baseball's best contact hitters, consistently among the AL's leaders in at bats per strikeout.[1]
Ichiro Suzuki is one of baseball's best contact hitters, consistently among the AL's leaders in at bats per strikeout.[1]

In baseball, a contact hitter is a hitter who does not strike out often. Thus, they are usually able to use their bats to make contact with the ball (hence the name contact hitter) to put it in play, and then run fast to reach base. As a result of their focus on putting the ball in play, they usually have fewer home runs than power hitters.

Tony Gwynn is the leading example of a modern contact hitter. Although he had 135 career home runs, Gwynn accurately described himself as a contact hitter who could hit to all fields. He rarely struck out (just 434 times, once every 21 at-bats) and his goal was to put the ball in play and move baserunners over. Gwynn's success as a contact hitter landed him in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
