Out At First
Jake asked: Which is the most common type of out - strike out, fly out, or ground out?
Rick answered: Jake, thank you for your question.
I believe ground ball outs are the most common, followed by fly outs and then strikeouts.
Pitchers work hard to keep the ball down and create ground balls, rather than letting hitters get the ball in the air, where there is a possibility of it leaving the yard.
Don't know if there is a stat kept anywhere for that. Possibly, if you go to my resource page, you will find a link to a site called Baseball Reference. It is a very good statistics site for Baseball.
Yours in baseball,
