How to Calculate a Batting Average

Make the Calculation

    Fortunately for rabid baseball fans everywhere, calculating a player's batting average doesn't take advance math. Just divide the number of base hits the player gets by the number of times he's been at bat. For example, if a player has been at bat 520 times and has gotten 179 hits, his batting average is 179/520, or .344. Walks do not count as an at-bat, and neither do sacrifice flies or bunts or getting hit by a pitch.
