The “common” set has several variations (DO Doubles, TR Triples, etc.), but these are the ones that are regarded “official” and are the ones that are used here at Baseball Almanac, among other places. Did you know that the National Association (a non-official league that gave rise to the National Leagueofficial )’s statistics were destroyed in a fire in the early 1900’s? Major League Baseball organized a Special Baseball Records Committee in the 1960s to examine the irregular records that had been kept previous to the 1920 season.

## Baseball Prospectus

View Glossary Entries that have been struck by sacrifice. Prior to the year 1894, there was no record of it. In the years 1894 to 1907, they were virtually the same as they are now: a bunt that moved a baserunner forward. They contained what we would today refer to as a sacrificial fly between 1908 and 1925. (sacrifices increase 25 percent between 1907 and 1908 as a result). From 1926 through 1930, they counted any fly ball on which a runner progressed as a run, not simply those on which the runner was successful in scoring (another 25 percent increase in 1926).

In 1939, they reinstated the run-scoring sac fly (returning to the 1908-25 regulations), although they did so only for a short time before eliminating it completely in 1940.

Definitions of Baseball Terms | |

% Inherited Scored | A Relief Pitching statistic indicating the percentage of runners on base at the time a relief pitcher enters a game that he allows to score. |

1st Batter OBP | The On-Base Percentage allowed by a relief pitcher to the first batter he faces in a game. |

Active Career Batting Leaders | Minimum of 1,000 At Bats required for Batting Average, On-Base Percentage, Slugging Percentage, At Bats Per HR, At Bats Per GDP, At Bats Per RBI, and K/BB Ratio. One hundred (100) Stolen Base Attempts required for Stolen Base Success %. Any player who appeared in 1995 is eligible for inclusion provided he meets the category’s minimum requirements. |

Active Career Pitching Leaders | Minimum of 750 Innings Pitched required for Earned Run Average, Opponent Batting Average, all of the Per 9 Innings categories, and Strikeout to Walk Ratio. Two hundred fifty (250) Games Started required for Complete Game Frequency. One hundred (100) decisions required for Win-Loss Percentage. Any player who appeared in 1995 is eligible for inclusion provided he meets the category’s minimum requirements. |

BA ScPos Allowed | Batting Average Allowed with Runners in Scoring Position. |

Baserunners per Nine Innings | These are the hits, walks and hit batsmen allowed per nine innings. |

Bases Loaded | This category shows a player’s batting average in bases loaded situation. |

Batting Average | Hits divided by At Bats. |

Bequeathed Runners | Any runner(s) on base when a pitcher leaves a game are considered bequeathed to the departing hurler; the opposite of inherited runners (see below). |

Blown Saves | This is charged any time a pitcher comes into a game where a save situation is in place and he loses the lead. |

Catcher’s ERA | The Earned Run Average of a club’s pitchers with a particular catcher behind the plate. To figure this for a catcher, multiply the Earned Runs Allowed by the pitchers while he was catching times nine and divide that by his number of Innings Caught. |

Cheap Wins/Tough Losses/Top Game Scores | First determine the starting pitcher’s Game Score as follows: |

- Start with a number of 50
- The starting pitcher gets one point for every strikeout he records
- After the fourth inning, add 2 points for each additional inning the pitcher goes on to complete. For each strikeout, add one point to your total. For each hit that is permitted, deduct two points. For each earned run that is permitted, subtract 4 points. Add 2 points to account for an unearned run. For each stroll, deduct one point from your total.

Cleanup Slugging% | The Slugging Percentage of a player when batting fourth in the batting order. |

Clutch | This category shows a player’s batting average in the late innings of close games: the seventh inning or later with the batting team ahead by one, tied, or has the tying run on base, at bat or on deck. |

Complete Game Frequency | Complete Games divided by Games Started. |

Defensive Batting Average | A composite statistic incorporating various defensive statistics to arrive at a number akin to batting average. The formula uses standard deviations to establish a spread from best to worst. |

Earned Run Average | (Earned Runs times 9) divided by Innings Pitched. |

Fast-A | Otherwise known as “Advanced A,” these A-level minor leagues are the California League, Carolina League and Florida Stat League. |

Favorite Toy | The Favorite Toy is a method that is used to estimate a player’s chance of getting to a specific goal in the following example, we’ll say 3,000 hits.Four things are considered: |

- Needed Hits – the number of hits required to get the desired result. (Of course, this could also be “Need Home Runs” or “Need Doubles” – whatever you choose to call it.)
- Years Remaining in the Contract. The formula 24-.6 is used to estimate the number of years that will be required to achieve the target (age). As a result of this approach, players under the age of 20 have 12.0 seasons left on their contract. Players under the age of 25 have nine seasons left on their contract, players under 30 have 6.0 seasons left on their contract, and players over 35 have just three season left on their contract. Any athlete who is currently actively participating in competitive sports is presumed to have at least 1.5 seasons left, regardless of his or her age. Hit Level has been established. For 1996, the established hit level would be calculated by multiplying 1993 hits by two times 1994 hits by three times 1995 hits by six, and then dividing the result by six. A player, on the other hand, cannot have an established performance level that is less than three-fourths of his most recent performance level
- For example, a player who had 200 hits in 1995 cannot have an established hit level that is less than 150
- Hits that are expected to be made in the future. This is calculated by multiplying the second number (the number of ears left) by the third number (the established hit level)

‘Need Hits’ refers to the number of hits required to achieve the objective. “Need Home Runs” or “Need Doubles” or “Need Triples” or “Need Triples” or anything you want to call it. ; Amount of time left: years Calculated using the formula 24-.6 to get the number of years left to achieve the objective (age). As a result of this approach, players under the age of 20 have 12.0 seasons left on their contract. Players under the age of 25 have nine seasons left on their contract. Players under 30 have 6.0 seasons left on their contract.

The Hit Level has been established; Adding up 1993 hits, twice as many 1994 hits, three times as many 1995 hits, and divided by six would get the established hit level for 1996.

- The probability of a player continuing to develop toward a goal cannot be more than.97 per year. For example, a player cannot calculate that they have a 148 percent probability of completing their goal because this is against the rules.)
- The possibility of a player continuing to develop toward the objective cannot be more than.75 each season if his offensive winning percentage is below.500 throughout the season. If a below-average batter is two years away from attaining a goal, his likelihood of accomplishing that objective cannot be proved to be better than nine-sixteenths of a percent, or three-fourths times three-fourths, no of his age.
- Rather of using actual figures from a complete season of play, we utilized predicted metrics for 1994 and 1995.

Fielding Percentage | (Putouts plus Assists) divided by (Putouts plus Assists plus Errors). |

First Batter Efficiency | This statistic tells you the batting average allowed by a relief pitcher to the first batter he faces. |

GDP per GDP Situation | A GDP situation exists any time there is a man on first with less than two outs. This statistic measures how often a player grounds into a double play in that situation. |

Go-Ahead RBI | Any time a player drives in a run which gives his team the lead, he is credited with a go-ahead RBI. |

Ground/Fly Ratio (Grd/Fly) | Simply a hitter’s ground balls divided by his fly balls. All batted balls except line drives and bunts are included. |

Hold | A Hold is credited any time a relief pitcher enters a game in a Save Situation (see definition below), records at least one out, and leaves the game never having relinquished the lead.Note: a pitcher cannot finish the game and receive credit for a Hold, nor can he earn a hold and a save. |

Inherited Runner | Any runner(s) on base when a relief pitcher enters a game are considered “inherited” by that pitcher. |

Isolated Power | Slugging Percentage minus Batting Average. |

K/BB Ratio | Strikeouts divided by Walks. |

- During the seventh inning or later, the batting side is either up by one run, tied, or has a possible tying run on base, at the plate, or on deck
- The game is over

Leadoff On Base% | The On-Base Percentage of a player when batting first in the batting order. |

No Decision (ND) | The result when a starter is credited with neither a win nor a loss. |

OBP+SLUG (OPS) | On-base percentage plus slugging percentage. |

Offensive Winning Percentage (OWP) | The Winning Percentage a team of nine Fred McGriffs (or anybody) would compile against average pitching and defense. The formula: (Runs Created per 27 outs) divided by the League average of runs scored per game. Square the result and divide it by (1+itself). |

Opponent Batting Average | Hits Allowed divided by (Batters Faced minus Walks minus Hit Batsmen minus Sacrifice Hits minus Sacrifice Flies minus Catcher’s Interference). |

Outfielder Hold Percentage | A statistic used to evaluate outfielders’ throwing arms. “Hold Percentage” is computed by dividing extra bases taken (by baserunners) by the number of opportunities. For example, if a single is lined to center field with men on first and second, and one man scores while the other stops at second, that is one extra base taken on two opportunities, a 50.0 hold percentage. |

PCS (Pitchers’ Caught Stealing) | The number of runners officially counted as Caught Stealing where the initiator of the fielding play was the pitcher, not the catcher. Note: such plays are often referred to as pickoffs, but appear in official records as Caught Stealings. The most common pitcher caught stealing scenario is a 1-3-6 fielding play, where the runner is officially charged a Caught Stealing because he broke for second base. Pickoff (fielding play 1-3 being the most common) is not an official statistic. |

Percentage of Pitches Taken | This tells you how often a player lets a pitch go by without swinging. |

Percentage of Swings Put In Play | This tells you how often a player hits the ball into fair territory, or is retired on a foul-ball out, when he swings. |

Range Factor | The number of Chances (Putouts plus Assists) times nine divided by the number of Defensive Innings Played. The average for a Regular Player at each position in 1997: |

- 5.00 points for second base, 2.67 points for third base, 4.56 points for shortstop, and 1.99 points for left field, 2.55 points for center field, and 2.06 points for right field.

Relief Points (Pts) | Wins plus saves minus losses |

Run Support Per 9 IP | The number of runs scored by a pitcher’s team while he was still in the game times nine divided by his Innings Pitched. |

Runs/Times on Base | This is calculated by dividing Runs Scored by Times on Base |

Save Percentage | Saves (SV) divided by Save Opportunities (OP). |
