Abstract: When we watch a baseball game, we often witness scenes that a line drive flies out in front of a fielder. On the other hand, a pop fly falls between infielders and outfielders. In such a scene, we viewers express unlucky or lucky for the batter. Therefore, luck is supposed to be existing in baseball. In other words, it is hard to say that hitting records depend on only the ability of the batters. In this paper, lucky or unlucky is occurred in unpredictable cases with human eyes. Hence, we consider that luck exists in a phenomenon beyond observers expected based on their observable information.
