Youth Baseball Digest: Calculating your Batting Average

There is a simple formula used to determine your batting average:


What the formula is saying is that you divide the total number of hits by the total number of at bats and the resulting number is your average.

If you need it to be broken down into clearly defined steps, here they are:

Step # 1 – Count the total number of hits your batter has recorded in the score book, up to this date. This is a task that is made much easier if your keep your player player per game totals updated after every game.

Step # 2 – Count your total number of at-bats that have been recorded up to this date in your score book. This is a task that is made much easier if your keep your player player game totals updated after every game. At-bats include all hits, strikeouts, hits on errors, sacrifices, walks, and hit by pitch events.

Step # 3 – Now Divide your hits by your at bats to get a number. Round the number to 3 decimal places such as.250, .333 or.257.

Here are other points to remember when calculating your average:

1. The Batting Average is a number with three decimal places that represent a percentage. For example, a batter with a.333 average has gotten on base with a hit 33.33% of the times he has batted. A batter with a.250 average has gotten on base with a hit 25% of the times he has batted.

2. Getting on base as a result of an error or fielder's choice does not count as a hit on the hit total.
