Actually, you're doing such a great job, I was thinking to bow out and let you run the show.

...but you'd have to explain the rules first...

In baseball, the batting average is the ratio of the number of the number of hits that gets the runner on base to the number of times the batter is at-bat (walks, being hit by the ball, or interference by the catcher, do not count as hits or at-bats).

For example, if a batter gets a hit and is on base 200 times out of 500 at-bats, the batting average is 200 / 500 = 0.400. So, if you're batting 1.000, it means that you get a hit and on base every time you come up to the plate.

There you go. Simple really. I do remember trying to get to grips with it once and not quite getting there... still fun to watch though. Very tactical.

The process of observation changes that which is observed, hence you cannot photograph reality.
