It is calculated with the formula (Hits + Walks + Hit by Pitch) / (At Bats + Walks + Hit by Pitch + Sacrifice Flies). In 1955, Stan Musial had 562 at bats, 179 hits, 80 walks, and was hit by the pitch 8 times. He had 4 sacrifice flies. That gives him an On Base Percentage of .408. Slugging Percentage (SLG) is a popular measure of a batter's power. It is calculated as (Total Bases) / (At Bats). Another way to look at it is (Singles + 2 x Doubles + 3 x Triples + 4 x Home Runs) / (At Bats). In 1955, Stan Musial had 562 at bats, and hit 111 singles, 30 doubles, 5 triples, and 33 home runs, for a .566 slugging percentage. Being able to get on base and to hit for power are two of the most important offensive skills in baseball, so the On Base Percentage and Slugging Percentage are often added together. On-base plus slugging (OPS) is a sabermetric baseball statistic. The best hitters in Major League Baseball can achieve an OPS of .900 or higher. In 1955, Stan Musial had a .408 On Base Percentage and a .566 Slugging Percentage for an OPS of .974. Runs Created (RC) is a baseball statistic invented by Bill James to estimate the number of runs a hitter contributes to his team. There are a number of formulas used to calculate it. One of the simplest is (On Base Percentage) × (Total Bases). In 1955, Stan Musial had a .408 On Base Percentage and 318 Total Bases for 129.83 Runs Created.
