We calculate OPS+ for 2017 MAW hitters and analyze whether or not the statistic works as intended when applied to this environment.
There are dozens of things about competitive Wiffle® Ball that throws people for a loop. One of my favorite – because it seems like such a silly thing to get fixated on – is the incredulous reaction people give upon learning that leagues such as MAW maintain statistics. Who knows why, but I have encountered a fair amount of folks for whom that is the final straw. They can accept almost everything else about the game but apparently keeping statistics is one step too far for some.
