The link to "quantum mechanics" as physicists know it is tenuous, but the link is that there is a unit at the heart of things. Here it is the "a bat" (but nothing sub-atomic). 

The purposes of the discussion, in my view, include (1) to have some fun (2) to learn something interesting or useful (in no particular order).

Forgive me as a novice to the quantum mechanics to ask the following
question.  How is the quantum mechanics to do with using "Is an .833
Hitter Better Than a .338 Hitter?" as an example?  What is purpose of
this discussion here?

May, 2007 "Is an .833 Hitter Better Than a .338 Hitter?" that elaborates
on your baseball example.

Um... it is rather the other way around: I reproduced the example
because it stuck in my head, but for the life of me, I would not
remember where I would have read about it! Thanks for the cite, Al!
