Hitting on the Interstate

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

Hitting on the Interstate is a slang reference to hitting so poorly that one's batting average resembles the number of an interstate highway, such as I-80, I-90, or I-10.

Although there are interstate highways with high numbers, no one ever uses the slang reference when a player is hitting, say, .280.
