Since the observed variance in outcomes is the variance in skill plus the variance in luck, a decrease in the variance of skill (with the variance in luck remaining the same) should reveal itself in the observed variation in batting averages, quantified by means of the standard deviation.

Since the observed variance in outcomes is the variance in skill plus the variance in luck, a decrease in the variance of skill (with the variance in luck remaining the same) should reveal itself in the observed variation in batting averages, quantified by means of the standard deviation.

Sure enough, during the first years of Free Fixed Betting Matches 1×2 (1870s), standard deviation in batting averages was around 0.05, meaning around two-thirds of all batting averages were roughly in the range 0.2 to 0.3, with about 95% between 0.15 and 0.35.

Today, the standard deviation is about half of what it was. Consequently, extreme outliers have become less common. In the 19th century we might have expected a batting average of 0.40 to appear once in every 1,000 hitters; today that might be more like 1 in a million.

Mauboussin also reminds us that as the variance in skill diminishes the variance in luck, luck will assume an ever-increasing importance in the calculation of outcomes. “If everyone gets better at something, luck plays a more important role in determining who wins.”
