My son, PM, has always hit .400 or better in every league he has ever played in.......until this summer. He has played probably half of his team's 16 games, averaging 2 at bats per game, so probably 16 at bats. He has a homer, a bunt hit and an infield single. 3 for 16 -- .188.
So last night he pinch hits with second and third, two outs -- hard line drive single up the middle, two RBI. Now around 4 for 17 -- .235. He told his mother (I was absent) after the game -- "I was so happy, I almost cried right there on the field."
It can be a tough, tough game. But the good thing is, if you could happen to get 2 straight hits, you are now hitting over .300, so I am crossing my fingers.
