Actually, both occur at about the same rate. In MLB history, there have been 255 no hitters thrown and 277 batters to hit for the cycle. Click on the links below to see the pitchers that have thrown no hitters and the batters that have hit for the cycle.

A no hitter is a complete game 27 outs or more. the pitcher can not allow a hit or the no hitter will be gone.

It depends on your age / skill level. I coach an elite u-12 team but at that age, a hitting percentage of zero is considered pretty good. Remember that hitting percentages can be negative, if you have more errors than kills for a certain number of attempts. For older, more experienced athletes, a hitting percentage of .300 is pretty good - think baseball!

The term 'cleanup' in baseball stands for the 4th position in the batting order. Usually a power hitter bats fourth, and it is hoped that one or more batters get on base so the cleanup hitter can knock them in with an extra base hit.

In MLB, only one team has had more than one 50+ home run hitter in a season ... that being the 1961 New York Yankees with Roger Maris hitting 61 and Mickey Mantle hitting 54.

He does as long as he ends up at thirdbase after hitting the ball and no defensive player is charged with an error that allowed the hitter to advance one or more of the 3 bases.
