In order to score your hitting stats correctly, follow these instructions:
Fields for Entry:
PA = Plate Appearances - Enter the number of times the player was up at bat no matter what the outcome. (If a pinch hitting replaces a batter while they are at bat it will only count as a plate appearance for the pinch hitter unless the pinch hitter was put in with 2 strikes and they strikeout. In this case the plate appearance goes to the batter who had the 2 strike count. Also, if a runner makes the third out while a player is at bat, this plate appearance is not counted at this time. This batter will lead off the next inning and the plate appearance will be counted then.)
1B = Singles - Enter the number of singles the player had in the game.
2B = Doubles - Enter the number of doubles the player had in the game.
3B = Triples - Enter the number of triples the player had in the game.
HR = Home Runs - Enter the number of home runs the player had in the game.
R = Runs - Enter the number of runs the player scored in the game.
RBI = Runs Batted In - Enter the number of batters that scored because of your at-bat. (Do not include any runs that score because of a fielder's error unless they would have scored even if there wasn't an error on the play. Also do not count an RBI if the batter grounds into a double play.) Runs scored during a pitch that results in a passed ball should be credited as an RBI for the batter.
BB = Walks - Enter the number of walks the player had in the game.
HBP = Hit by Pitch - Enter the number of times the player was hit by a pitch while they were batting.
K = Strikeouts - Enter the number of times the player struck out during the game.
SB = Stolen Bases - Enter the number of successful stolen bases the player had during the game. (Do not include any bases taken on passed balls or anytime the defense strategically allows you to take a base. ex There are runners on first and third. Runner on first runs to second but the catcher doesn't throw because he is worried about the runner from third scoring. This is a defensive indifference and should not be counted as an SB.)
CS = Caught Stealing - Enter the number of times the player was thrown out while trying to steal a base.
SH = Sacrifice Hits - Enter the number of sacrifice bunts the player had in the game. (Any scenario where you bunt to advance a runner with less than two outs.)
SF = Sacrifice Flies - Enter the number of sacrifice flies the player had during the game. (A teammate must score on the sacrifice fly for it to count in this column.)
DI = Defensive Interference - Enter the number of times the player reached base because of catcher's interference or any other interference that automatically puts the batter on first base.
ROE = Reached on Error - Enter the number of times the player reached first base due to a fielding error.
FC = Fielder's Choice - Enter the number of times the player reached first base due to the defense electing to make an out elsewhere even though they would have gotten the player out if they tried. (Ask yourself if the player would have been out if there weren't any other people on base. This will also be a judgement call if they try to made an out elsewhere but don't get the ball there in time. If they had not tried to get the other baserunner out, would the batter have been out?)
AB = At Bats - The equation is AB = PA - BB - HBP - SH - SF - DI
H = Hits - The equation is H = 1B + 2B + 3B + HR
AVG = Batting Average - The equation is AVG = (H/AB)
OBP = On Base Percentage - The equation is OBP = ((H + BB + HBP)/(AB + BB + HBP + SF))
SLG% = Slugging Percentage - The equation is SLG% = ((1B + (2*2B) + (3*3B) + (4*HR))/AB)
OPS = On Base Percentage + Slugging Percentage - The equation is OPS = OBP + SLG%
