does one contribute to the other or are they in their own seperate categories?
which one accounts for hits? I train my team in power + contact does that help get hits or HRs?

It takes all three to really be a great hitter. and to answer your question. (from what i know)

1)Yes they contribute to one another.
2)You need power to hit far.
you need contact to hit the ball.
you need skill to hit the ball where you wont be out.
3)yes it helps, but skill is also needed, but maxxing contact then training power gives more skill gains i beleive.

You absolutely need contact to hit the ball. If you don't have batting skill, you'll hit it right to the short stop every time and get thrown out at first every time. If you have no power, you won't see very many homeruns. So decide which is more important, and work off of that. If you need help with your team, pm me and i'll help you out.
