What is Batting Average on Balls in Play?

Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) is a baseball statistic used to evaluate a batter (or pitcher’s) average on balls that go into play.

How to Calculate BABIP

In Baseball, Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) is calculated as:
$\frac{\text{Hits}-\text{Home Runs}}{\text{At Bats}-\text{Strikeouts}-\text{Home Runs}+\text{Sacrifice Flies}}$

Example

If a batter has:
– 193 hits
– 44 home runs
– 555 at bats
– 90 strikeouts
– 12 sacrifice flies
then:
BABIP = (193 – 44) / (555 – 44 – 90 + 12)
BABIP = 149 / 433
BABIP = 0.344
Therefore, the batter’s Batting Average on Balls in Play is 0.344.
