There are many terms for various statistics in baseball, most of them with abbreviations. Below are a list of abbreviations, their full names, and their meanings, as used in the Batting tables.

Primary StatisticsEdit

AgeEdit

The player’s age on July 1st of that year.

GmEdit

Games played by that player in that year (including part games).

AVGEdit

Batting Average (calculated by H/ AB )

ABEdit

At Bats (times at the plate when the player did not walk, bunt, or get hit by a pitch).

REdit

Runs Scored (number of times the player crossed the plate).

HEdit

Hits (either a single, double, triple, or homerun).

SIEdit

Singles (times when a player’s hit allowed them to advance only as far as first base).

DOEdit

Doubles (times when a player’s hit allowed them to advance only as far as second base).

TREdit

Triples (times when a player’s hit allowed them to advance only as far as third base).

HREdit

Home Runs (times when a player’s hit allowed them to advance through every base and score all at once).

TBEdit

Total Bases (calculated by (SI + 2*DO + 3*TR + 4*HR)

RBIEdit

Runs Batted In (when a player’s time at the plate is responsible for causing a baserunner to score).

BBEdit

Base on Balls, also known as a “Walk” (when a player is granted first base because the opposing pitcher threw four balls during the player’s time at the plate).

SOEdit

Strikeout, also known as a “K” (when a player’s time at bat is finished because the opposing pitcher got three strikes)

Secondary StatisticsEdit

SBEdit

Stolen Bases (when a baserunner advances to the next base simply by running there before he can be thrown out)

CSEdit

Caught Stealing (when a baserunner attempts to advance to “steal” the next base, but is caught – tagged “out”)

Pct.Edit

Percentage – in this case it is referring to the number of successful stolen base attempts by the player, calculated by SB/(SB+CS)

SHEdit

Sacrifice Hit, also known as a “Bunt”

SFEdit

Sacrifice Fly

IBBEdit

Intentional Base on Balls

HBPEdit

Hit by Pitch (when a player has been deemed hit by a pitched ball – the player is awarded first base)

GDPEdit

Grounded into Double Play (a player’s time at the plate is responsible for two outs on the basepaths)

OBPEdit

On-Base Percentage (H+ BB+ HBP)/( AB+BB+SF+HBP) (SF and HBP are assumed zero if unavailable)

SLGEdit

Slugging Percentage (TB/ AB)

PROEdit

Production (OBP + SLG)

Special BattingEdit

PAEdit

Plate Appearances -approximated (AB + BB + HBP + SF + SH)

TAEdit

Total Average, calculated by (TB + SB +BB + HBP)/( AB - H + CS + GDP)

RCEdit

Runs Created - A runs estimator created by Bill James. A runs estimator attempts to quantify the entire contribution of a player's statistics to a team's total runs scored. It typically involves some positive value for things like hits, walks, steals, home runs, etc. and negative values for outs, caught stealing and GIDP. There are 24 different versions of RC depending on the stats you have. The basic version is (H + BB)*( TB)/( AB + BB)

RC/27Edit

Runs Created per Game - Typically the average game has around 27 outs, but this can vary by the size of the homefield advantage and the number of extra-inning games. We use the seasonal average outs/game.

IsoPwEdit

Isolated Power (TB - H) / AB

AB/HREdit

At Bats per Homerun
