Game/Player stats have been added. I track these to help identify areas of improvement, and to give the boys some goals to set for themselves. I've been doing this for my older son's select team for years, and it helps to motivate the boys while also helping to target areas that need work.  It also helps to objectively set a lineup to optimize our chance to win in an important game (such as a tournament playoff game or key league game). 

However, I don't want for this to be a discouragement for the boys.  It is important to not get too focused on a single stat like batting average.  At this age, a hitter can still be effective and successful with a low batting average.  For me, the key stat for hitting is OPS, which is ON BASE % plus SLUGGING %.  This measure gives credit to the hitter for reaching base via hit, walk or being hit by pitch.  It also gives additional credit for extra base hits.  In this way, it measures their total performance at the plate.  I also track when a hitter reaches base via a fielding error (ROE - reached on error) or by a fielder's choice (FC).  Although these don't count as hits and won't improve the batting average or OPS, I can still see that the player put the ball in play and reached base.  Often, this results in a RBI or an eventual run scored, which benefits the team.
