Sacrifice bunts and sacrifice flies are not officially counted as "at bats".
No, a successful sacrifice bunt does not count as an at bat. If the bunt is unsuccessful, the batter is charged with an at bat. Similarly, if the batter beats out the play and is awarded a hit, an at bat is counted. Sacrifice flies, walks, and getting hit by pitch also do not count as at bats. All of these are recorded as Plate Appearances.
Yes. While a sacrifice fly does not count against your batting average it does against your on base percentage. On base % = (hits + walks + hits by pitch) / (at-bats + walks + hits by pitch + sacrifice flies)
Number of hits divided by the official at bats. An error or fielder's choice counts against a batting average as an at bat, but it does not count as a hit. A sacrifice or walk does not count against a batter's at bat totals. These are plate appearances which are different. So, a batter could have 140 plate appearances, 100 at bats, and 30 hits. You would divide 30 by 100, which would give you a batting average of .300.
No. On-base percentage is calculated by adding hits, walks and hit-by-pitches and dividing that number by the sum of all at-bats, walks, hit-by-pitches and sacrifice flies. (Source: www.homerunweb.com/onbase.html)A fielder's choice does not improve a player's batting average, and neither does an error.djagameking:Actually an error counts towards your on base percentage, just not your average. Does a fielder's choice count towards your obp.
Yes. At bats are counted pretty much identically to baseball. Thing that would result in no at bat would be: walk, hit by pitch, sacrifice fly, sacrifice bunt.

Plate appearances is the total number of times a player has stood at the plate ... regardless of outcome. At-bats are counted when a batter either scores an 'out' or scores a 'hit'. If the batter receives a Base-on-balls, hit by pitch, or reaches base as the result of an error or Fielder's choice, it doesn't count as an at-bat. Batting average is figured as hits/at-bats. On-base percentage is figured as #of times on base / plate appearances This answer is wrong... If the batter reaches base as a result of an error or fielder's choice it still counts as an at bat, if the batter records an out that results in a sacrifice fly it does not count as an at bat. Also a base on balls includes the possibility of hit by pitch in its definition.
No, walks do not count as an at-bat.
At last count, there are more than 900 species of bats.
MLB player Michael Choice bats right.
A base on balls, being hit by the pitch, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly. None of these are official at-bats.
walks count as plate appearance but doesnt count as a time at bat
1 hit in 3 at bats. Walks don't count as at bats.
It still counts as a plate appearance, and as a result of your plate appearance (bases loaded walk), a run scored. Therefore you are credited with an RBI. A sacrifice fly doesn't count as an at-bat either, but RBIs are credited. Double-plays are counted as at-bats but they disqualify RBIs. "At-bats" have absolutely nothing to do with RBIs.
Yes, but it must be solidly taped up to (I believe) one-third up the bat. This is to prevent the bat from shattering and hurting the batter or nearby fielders.
No, a hit by pitched ball is not an official at bat, just like a base on balls is not an official at bat. Yes. It will not show up underneath the AB statistic for a player but it does count towards the number of at bats needed to win a batting title. Actually, number of at bats is not the term used to determined a batting title. The term is actually "plate appearances" and includes official "at bats", walks, hit by pitched ball, catcher interference, sacrifices, sacrifice flys, which do not count as "at bats". Official "at bats" are recorded for a hitter who gets a base hit, reaches on an error, strikes out, or hits into an out. Batting averages are determined by dividing hits by official at bats, so, a hit by pitched ball does not count toward one's batting average as it is not an "at bat", but is a "plate appearance".
The official formula for on-base percentage is (Hits + Walks + Hit by pitch) / (At-bats + Walks + Hit by pitch + sacrifice flies). Reaching base on an error goes against your BA and OBP, as it doesn't count as a hit but counts as an at bat.
No. Bases on balls are not counted as official at bats.
The stream of bats exiting the cave was too multitudinous to count. The colony of bats in the cave was too multitudinous to count. The multitudinous swarm of bees overcame the hapless hiker.
This is simply on-base percent plus Slugging. It is a stat similar to Gross Production Average -- it gives a number. The higher the better, on-base percent is: (hits + walks + hit by pitch) / plate appearances. Reaching on an error or a fielders choice does not count as an on-base. A sac fly does count as a plate appearance. Slugging is: (1*Singles + 2*doubles + 3*triples + 4*homers) / total At Bats. sacs and walks do not count as at bats. The theoretical max for on-base percent is 1 (assuming you always get on base) The theoretical max for Slugging is 4 (assuming you get a home run at every at bat) to determine OPS; you just add the on-base percent to the slugging. This makes the theoretical max for OPS: 5.000, unlike other stats where 1.000 is generally the max.
It depends on how many credited "at bats" she had. If she had 48 official at bats, plate appearances, without walks, sacrifices hits, sacrifice flys, catcher interferences, hit by pitches, which do not count at at bats, with 16 hits, her batting average would be .333. That means she got a hit 33.3% of the time.
If the game is called off before it is an official game, nothing done during play counts as an official statistic. If a full game is not played but is called once it becomes an official game, the at-bats count.
