Author's abstract

A triarchical model of batting ability in baseball (Power, Skill, and Speed) was hypothesized. Factor analysis of data obtained from 77 players on the four 1996 playoff teams produced three meaningful oblique factors, giving support to the proposed model. The factor structure and specific pattern of factor loadings were quite stable as coefficients of congruence of .97 to .99 were obtained between factors extracted from separate analyses of the National League players (n = 38) an(-] the American League players (n = 39).
