### Beat the Streak: Day Nine

In this blog post, I want to talk about why getting 80% success rate in beat the streak is so challenging. I believe I identified a mathematical reason for this, which I am going to share in this blog post. First, lets look at some simple statistics that hint that 80% success should not be out of reach. In the table below, we are showing the percentage of games with a hit for the most successful batters in 2011-2019. batter % Games with Hit 2011 Jacoby Ellsbury 0.821656 2012 Derek Jeter 0.812121 2013 Michael Cuddyer 0.807692 2014 Jose Altuve 0.803797 2015 Dee Gordon 0.800000 2016 Mookie Betts 0.807453 2017 Ender Inciarte 0.775641 2018 Jose Altuve 0.786207 2019 DJ LeMahieu
