On Base Percentage
On Base Percentage is the average of a batter
obtained by dividing the total number of hits, bases on balls and times
hit by pitch by the total of atbats, bases on balls, times hit by pitch
and sacrifice flies. For example, if Barry has 529 atbats, 175 hits, 64
walks, 7 times hit by pitch and 8 sacrifice flies, his onbase percentage
is .405 or ((175+64+7)/(529+64+7+8)).
