No it does not, it is simply a free shot, and why a lot of guys who drive to the basket a lot not only shoot foul shots but have a higher shooting percentage. If you miss it is simply a mention of fouled while shooting (no base stat - yes understand this is an advanced stat) and then if they make it it is a shot attempt and a shot made. This is how it is ...

No player with a reasonable number of innings has an ODI average remotely close to 99, or even above 70. You have misheard or misremembered the details of such a statement being made about Don Bradman, whose Test average was 99.94. He required only four runs from his last innings to achieve exactly 100 average, but instead was bowled for a two-ball duck.

Sacks and Tackles for Loss are both subsets of Tackles. Whether or not Sacks can be recorded as Tackles for Loss seems to vary based on who is reporting. For example: This ESPN Box Score lists Dante Fowler as having 1 sack and 1 TFL. However, the Pro-Football Reference for the same game gives him 1 sack and 0 TFL. It's clear that PFR records TFLs as ...

There is probably no single reason for the increase in strikeouts, but a combination of things that have added up over the years. The most important reason though is that pitchers are throwing harder now than they ever have. See this article from Craig Edwards at Fangraphs: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/dont-blame-hitters-for-all-the-strikeouts/ He ...

I found some statistics here. It will depend on whether they're playing on grass (relatively hard to break), hardcourt (medium) or clay (relatively easy).

I don't think you will ever find a definitive answer for this, as it varies so much from venue to venue and series to series, not to mention external factors (weather etc.) play just as big a role. However, qualifying is certainly important, and I will explain why below. Firstly, let's look at the factors influencing the importance of starting position; ...

Reading the article, there is only one other player who managed to have the same batting average for 3 consecutive years. **Mookie Wilson, with .276 from 1983 to 1985.

This is not a full answer, but an answer that may lead to the full answer. To avoid confusion, I interpret "winning goal" as "the most recent goal that put the team ahead with no further lead changes." For example, if the winning team shuts out their opponent and scored the first goal during the first period, the "winning goal" was scored during the first ...

There are three teams in NBA history who have won the NBA championship but never won more than 5 games in a row during their winning season.

The 2015-2016 Golden State Warriors lasted an entire season without losing back-to-back games on their way of posting an all-time regular season best record of 73-9. Therefore, the shortest longest losing streak among NBA teams in one season is 1. That very same season, the San Antonio Spurs lasted 78 games before losing back-to-back(-to-back) games. Next ...

So there's been a steady increase of strikeouts in recent ...

I would look at the early 2000s Lakers with Shaq and Kobe. They were both putting up close to 30 per game for a season or 2. Try the 00-01' and 01-02' seasons. 02-03' is possible even though Shaq had a tough year compared to usual. That was the year Kobe had the 12 consecutive 40 point games. Your question could be taken to mean a few different things ...
