I don't have stats on BA with RISP.
OPS is an excellent correlation stat. Teams with high OPS tend to score more runs.

Teams don't tell players, "focus on your OPS" because that doesn't make much sense. They tell players, "take walks and hit for power" that in turn increases OPS and lead sot more runs.
