 DNR - Weighted Lottery for Elk Hunting Licenses
In this system, hunters will receive one additional "chance" in future drawings each year they apply for an elk license and are unsuccessful in the drawing, starting with 2003 applications.
This allows individuals to maintain their application history and acquire an additional "chance" for future years, without the possibility of being drawn for a license in the current year.
The "chance" standing of any applicant who is successful in the elk drawing will return to zero "chances" after the drawing.

Bob Boone broke his major league mark for career total chances in 1987, and Boone and Gary Carter surpassed his putouts total in 1988; Carlton Fisk broke his AL records in 1989 (total chances) and 1990 (putouts).
In addition to his HRs and total bases, his.412 slugging average and totals of 1591 hits, 706 runs and 476 extra base hits all put him among the top five AL catchers to that time.
His batting totals are particularly remarkable in light of the fact that offense was at a low throughout the sport during his career, with a decided advantage toward pitchers.

 What is the probability that the policeman will shadow the correct person?
The total probability the police officer chooses the right person is therefore 1/5 + 1/10 + 1/30 + 1/10 = 13/30.
In all cases, it is the same problem: The candidates go by one by one, and you want to pick the biggest, but you have to make a snap decision, and you can never go back to the candidates that have gone by once before.
With probability 1/5, the smallest walks out first, and then the policeman's only chance is that the tallest is the next one to come out, and the probability of that happening is 1/4.

 Encyclopedia of Baseball Catchers - Dominating Catchers
For this study I counted the number of times a catcher led his league in the categories and divided that number by the number of total chances the catcher had to lead in those categories.
To compute total chances I took the number of years as a full-time catcher times the number of categories (four).
If he led the league (amongst catchers) in the four categories a total of five times, his percentage would be 5/40 (12.5 percent) -- not very good, as you shall see.

The second factor that you need to know is the number of chances that Mary had.
To calculate on base percentage, you need to know the number of total plate appearances, walks, intentional walks, hits, and times that you have reached first base on a passed ball.
She had 19 hits, 15 ground outs, 8 flyouts, 7 walks and reached once on a passed ball, so she was on base when she walked, got a hit, or reached on a passed ball.

 Esmerel: Accident Statistics
So the chance that it was actually Blue is the chance of it being correctly identified as Blue (12%) over the chance that it was identified as Blue, whichever colour it actually was (12% + 17%, or 29%).
The catch is that the small chance of his incorrect identification is swamped by the huge number of Green cabs, which just make it so much more likely that any cab in the city is Green.
The chances of a correctly identified Blue is 10% x 80% = 8%, and the chances of a misidentified Green is 90% x 20% = 18%, so the chances of a cab identified as Blue actually being Blue is only 8/26, or 31%.

When pairing up to ride the motorcycle, a person has one chance in 4 of being the driver, and the remaining people have one chance in 3 of being the rider, so each driver-rider permutation has 1/4 X 1/3 = 1/12 chance of happening -- implying that there are 4x3=12 possible permuations.

In other words, a third baseman with five chances earns fielding points because the chances per game for 3B is about 3.
The reason for this is obvious: The more plays fielders make in a game, the greater their impact on its outcome, hence the greater their share of the points.
Included (from left to right) are fielding average, total chances, putouts, assists, errors, and double plays.

If you have 16 on your first two cards, and the dealer is showing a 6 on their first card, you can stand and hope that the dealer busts.

Therefore, the probability of hitting '5 of 6' is calculated by dividing total possible combinations C(49,6) by total chances of '5 of 6' (258); 13,983,816 / 258 = 54,200.8 to 1 or '1 in 54,200.8'.
Therefore, the probability of hitting '4 of 6' is calculated by dividing total possible combinations C(49,6) by total chances of '4 of 6' (13,545); 13,983,816 / 13,545 = 1,032.4 to 1 or '1 in 1,032.4'.

 Gold Glove Standard - Baseball Fever
Consequently, if Player B makes one error, he would need more than 112 chances to pass Player A. I definitely think there can be a best fit, taking into account the kind of numbers we'd expect to see from year to year.
Also, having an exponential function means there is a larger difference between 50-100 chances than 100-150 chances, and 150-200 and so on...
I agree that total chances is a good first-order measure of fielding range; even better if you give credit only for chances fielded CLEANLY.

Eckstein did have a career-high of 775 total chances this season, 159 more than he had in any previous year.
He had 5.2 chances per nine innings played – sort of like an ERA for infielders – and that was also surpassed by Furcal (5.3).
So obviously Cardinals infielders saw more grounders, dealt with more chances and therefore their ranges and their raw totals are going to be skewed, for better or worse.
