Here is the percentage breakdown for a few particular years [2], and you can see that the pattern is very consistent:
2013 - 23.3% with 0 outs, 38.7% with 1 out, 38.0% with 2 outs
2012 - 24.0%, 38.4%, 37.6%
2011 - 22.9%, 39.7%, 37.3%
2010 - 23.2%, 38.5%, 38.3%
2000 - 23.8%, 38.8%, 37.3%
1990 - 22.1%, 40.1%, 37.8%
1980 - 22.1%, 40.2%, 37.7%
1970 - 22.8%, 39.8%, 37.5%
That's pretty consistent over time. Not even a 10% deviation for the high and low within an area. I wonder how far back that goes.

I guess that means that the new strategy for the chart-mongers is having the lead-off hitters for each inning take 3 strikes. I mean by doing that, wouldn't that increase their chances of scoring by at least 50%?
