**G = games played**

**AB = at-bats
APP = plate appearances**

**R = runs scored**

**R% = runs scored per 100 at-bats**

**H = hits**

**1B = singles**

**2B = doubles**

**2B% = doubles per 100 at-bats**

**3B = triples**

**3B% = triples per 100 at-bats**

**HR = home runs**

**HR% = home runs per 100 at-bats**

**RBI = runs batted in**

**RBI% = runs batted in per 100 at-bats**

**AVG = batting average**

**OBP = On Base Percentage** Sometimes referred to as On Base Average 'OBA', this
is a measure of how often a batter reaches base for any reason other than a
fielding error, fielder's choice, fielder obstruction, or catcher interference
(hits + walks + hit-by-pitch) divided by (at bats + walks+ hit-by-pitch + sac
flies).

**SLG = slugging % **The total of singles (1 pt), doubles (2 pts),
triples (3 pts), and home runs (4 pts) divided by total at-bats x 1000. A
player with 1 single, 1 double, 1 triple, and 1 home run in 8 at-bats earns a
slugging % of 1250 (1+2+3+4=10), divided by total at-bats (8) = 1.25 x 1000 =
1250.

**3AVG = 3 Game Average** This is the
batting average of a player's last 3 games.

**BB
= bases on balls**

**SACF = Sacrifice Fly **This
occurs when a runner tags up and scores as a result of a batted fly ball out
(or fly ball error if in the judgment of the scorekeeper the runner would have
tagged up and scored had the fly ball been caught)

**RUNC = Runs Created** This is an
estimate of how many runs have resulted from what a player has done with the
bat and on the base paths [(total bases) + (walks x .26) + (sac flies x .52)] x
on-base percentage.

**TB
= Total Bases** This refers to the number of bases a player has
gained with hits. The total is calculated using 1 point for a single, 2 points
for a double, 3 points for a triple and 4 points for a home run. Only bases
attained from hits count toward this total.

**PO = put-outs***

*****a put-out is a recorded
out by the fielder in any of the following scenarios…

a) caught fly ball, b) ground ball – step on the bag or tag the runner, c)
receive a throw from another fielder for a tag or force-out, d) strike out –
recorded for the pitcher, e) caught leaving the bag early – recorded for first,
second, or third baseman

*****an assist is a recorded
out by the fielder in any of the following scenarios…

a) infielder picks up a ground ball and throws to first – infielder receives an
assist, first baseman receives a put-out, b) infielder picks up a ground ball,
steps on a base to force a runner and throws to first to get the batter –
infielder gets a put-out and an assist, the first baseman gets a put-out, c)
any fielder throwing a runner out at any base receives credit for an assist and
the baseman receives a credit for a put-out, d) a ball is tipped off the glove
of let’s say the pitcher and the shortstop catches it in the air – pitcher gets
an assist, shortstop gets a put-out

**F% = fielding %***

*****fielding percentage is a
reflection of a player’s total defensive production based on the number of
games played. This statistic is player-position sensitive meaning certain
defensive positions will consistently produce higher numbers. In essence, a
middle infielder’s F% will usually be higher than other defensive positions
because of the greater opportunity for put-outs and assists. A general rule of
thumb indicating good defensive production per position would be as follows…

**Outfielders – 175+
3rd baseman – 300+
1st baseman – 350+
Pitcher - 350+
2nd baseman – 400+
Shortstop – 450+**
