One obvious caveat of this split is that OBP relative to AVG is almost meaningless because, obviously, a player can't walk on the first pitch of a plate appearance. Any difference is a result of hits-by-pitch (OBP goes up), sacrifice flies (OBP goes down) and sacrifice bunts (OBP goes down).

The other caveat is that it only includes balls that are put into play. Swinging strikes, foul balls, and anything else that serves to prolong the at-bat has no impact on these numbers.
