 Cyberslugger Trivia The Ultimate Baseball Trivia Game!! - Baseball Statistics
Total Baseball has adjusted OBP and SA for the player's home park and League OBP and League SA are the league average for each statistic respectively.
The total bases here was calculated by awarding 0 for a single, 1 for a double, 2 for a triple and 3 for a home run.
Numerous statistical studies done by Total Baseball have shown that the break even success rate for steals (the rate at which an attempt to steal is neither helping nor hurting the team in terms of total runs scored) is about 67%.

 Baseball Prospectus | Articles | Counterpoint: Pitching and Defense
In other words, when you remove defense-independent outcomes such as strikeouts, home runs, and walks from the batters a pitcher faces, the resulting batting average on "balls in play" (those handled by the defense) is not affected by the pitcher himself -- Pedro Martinez is the same as Jose Lima.
Thus, a pitcher with a ball-in-play average of.270 on a team who's total ball-in-play average was.280 would have his ball-in-play average expressed as the ratio of.270/.280 or 0.96.
A perfect correlation of +1.00 would indicate a totally predictable linear relationship between ball-in-play rates in the two halves of pitchers' careers, whereas a value of 0.00 would indicate that there's absolutely no statistical relationship.

If the third out occurs to a runner on base while batter is still at the plate, then that does not count as a plate appearance against that batter.
The scorer must judge if the batter was trying to advance the runner (sacrifice) or actually try to reach base for a hit, in which case it is not a sacrifice.
Batter would have been thrown out, but fielders chose to try for a different out with a base runner.

This is not always true, of course, because some outfielders have such a great reputation for throwing that nobody tries to run on them (meaning their assist totals are low).
For example, if a team's pitchers faced 6300 batters and this catcher was behind the plate 72% of time, he caught about 6300 *.72 = 4536 batters.

For instance, if you subtract 9.1 from the batter's walk, you would also subtract 9.1 from the pitcher's walk in the same league.
TBF is the equivalent to plate appearances for hitters.
FORMULA #15: Pitcher's Walk PWalk = ((W - 1W) * 216) I (TBF)) - 9 Pitcher's walk = ((walks minus inten-tional walks) times 216) divided by (total batters faced)) minus 9 How it works: Intentional walks are de-ducted from the walk total.

Drop Rate is the percent chance that a pitcher will not face any major league batters in a given season, based on comparables who disappear from the dataset entirely.
