The MLB website says the formula for calculating On Base Percentage is as follows:
H + BB + HBP
AB + BB + HBP + SF
I've never before kept track of this statistic in Strat, but in my current replay I plan on doing just that. My question is this: I keep track of all the stats listed (H, BB, HBP, AB, SF)
Is it really just as simple as that formula? I noticed a few ways that a batter can reach base, and can appear at the plate, that aren't listed in the formula. What about the following:
- Sac bunts. Should this not be included with AB, BB, HBP, and SF? I mean, it's a plate appearance.
- Reaching base on an error
- Force play. It's an out and an at-bat, but the batter reacher safely.
And is there anything else I need to know? I read something about fielder's obstruction, although I don't believe that relates to Strat.
