Question: Is there a relationship between batting average and salary?Answer: According to the data, I have found that there is not a positive correlation between batting average and salary. Possible Reasons: Salaries seem to differ between teams; Research indicates that salary caps prohibit some high salaries. Salaries also differ based on how long a player maintains a high batting average. Players can negotiate for higher salaries.
