Walks are not counted in figuring out Batting Averages. It's basically like you didn't take an at- bat for walks.

What is the highest batting average a player can get?

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.


Does a walk factor into 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.
