No. Walks do not count toward batting average. If you get a walk in your first at bat, you will still be 0-0.

Like you do any batting average. Total trips to the plate minus walks and sacrifices divided by hits

Walks count as an official plate appearance and are used in determining whether a player has met the minimum number of plate appearances needed to be eligible to win the batting title but are not used in calculating a player's batting average.

Yes, but they don't affect your batting average.

Number of base hits divided by number of times at bat, not counting any walks.

Batting average in softball is the number of hits divided by the number of at bats. Walks are not calculated as at bats or hits, as well as hit by pitches. A reached on error counts as an at bat, but does not count as a hit.

The highest batting average a player can have is 1.000, which would mean that he would have a hit every time he is at bat. Of course, this wouldn't count the times the batter may have been walked, since walks aren't considered "at-bats" and don't reflect upon his batting average.

No, walks do not factor. They don't count as At Bats and therefore don't affect the batting average. For example: a player is at the plate 4 times; he gets walked twice and has one hit. The two walks don't count as At Bats. He therefore has 1 Hit in 2 AB which, of course, is a .500 BA.
