To calculate batting average you need to find out how many at bats the player had. This is plate appearances minus walks minus hit by pitches much sacrifice bunts and flys. Then you need to find out how many of those at bats resulted in hits. Take the number of hits and divide it by the number of at bats. This will give you batting average.
