Abstract

Selecting the best hitter in a professional baseball league is considered a multi-attribute decision-making problem. We developed an evaluation model based on literature review and the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) to select the best hitter in the Chinese Professional Baseball League. We determined attribute weights and used the TOPSIS to calculate the individual performance ranking. We conducted an empirical analysis to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed model for addressing the problem associated with hitter performance. The results demonstrate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed model.
