It's not that strange. When Yaz won the Triple Crown there was legitimate debate over whether interracial marriage should be allowed and people didn't really know what cigarettes did to you, or at least to what extent. This is called knowledge advancement and is only "strange" in a decidedly anti-intellectualist society.

Interracial marriage is commonplace, cigarettes are bad, and RBI and BA are not the best ways of measuring the skill and value of a hitter.
