With me, baseball will never grow old. In my own estimation, it may not have improved so much as many believe, but regardless of everything, it is the same good old game. If I have contributed to its success, I do not refer to this in the sense of boasting. I had to or fall out of the ranks.

WHAT DOES ESTIMATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

estimation

Estimation

Estimation is the process of finding an estimate, or approximation, which is a value that is usable for some purpose even if input data may be incomplete, uncertain, or unstable. The value is nonetheless usable because it is derived from the best information available. Typically, estimation involves "using the value of a statistic derived from a sample to estimate the value of a corresponding population parameter". The sample provides information that can be projected, through various formal or informal processes, to determine a range most likely to describe the missing information. An estimate that turns out to be incorrect will be an overestimate if the estimate exceeded the actual result, and an underestimate if the estimate fell short of the actual result.

Definition of estimation in the English dictionary

The first definition of estimation in the dictionary is a considered opinion; judgment. Other definition of estimation is esteem; respect. Estimation is also the act of estimating.

I will be the 43-year-old guy in the jumpsuit. In my estimation and my image of myself is that I am 23 and can get away with it. If I didn't have the show, I would be in one right now. It would be denim, but I love a terry.

When God put everybody here, I don't think that he had a master plan of a pecking order. That's not what you see in the Bible.

It is our duty and our obligation and our responsibility to make sure that we've done so in the proper fashion.
