### What does obpslgops mean baseball stats?

It is a combination of 3 different stats. They are OBP/SLG/OPS,
which mean
On Base Percentage (OBP)
Slugging Percentage (SLG)
OBP Plus SLG (OPS)
Here is the formula for each one.
On Base Percentage (OBP) is used to determine how often a batter
reaches base safely divided by his number of plate appearances.
[Hits (H) + Walks (BB) + Hit By Pitch (HBP)] / [At Bats (AB) +
Walks (BB) + Hit By Pitch (HBP) + Sacrifice Flies (SF)]
Slugging Percentage (SLG) is used to determine how much power a
batter has
Total Bases (TB) / At Bats (AB)
On Base Percentage Plus Slugging Percentage (OPS) is exactly
that:
OBP + SLG
This statistic is used to determine how well-rounded a batter
is.

### How do you find your obp in baseball?

Add up your hits, walks, and hit by pitches and divide by the
number you get when adding up your at bats, walks, hit by pitches,
and sacrifice flies. As an example, we'll use Albert Pujols 2011
stats ...
Hits - 173
Walks - 61
Hit by Pitches - 4
At Bats - 579
Sacrifice Flies - 7
The OBP would be calculated as ...
(173 + 61 + 4) divided by (579 + 61 + 4 + 7) which equals
...
238 divided by 651 which equals .03655 which would round to
.0366.
Albert's OBP for the 2011 season was .0366.

### What is the most important stat in baseball?

The most important stat in baseball is on base percentage also
known as .OBP. It shows how often a batter reaches base. Joe Mauer
had the highest on base percentage in 09', at .444. That means he
reached base almost 4.5 times for every 10 at bats, The highest on
base percentage in history for one season was set by Ted William.
It was .553, according to World Baseball Almanac's website. The
reason this statistic is so important is because it shows how often
you have helped your team, and given them a chance to bat you
in.

### What is ops on baseball stat sheet?

On-Base plus Slugging percentage.
On-Base percentage is the hits+walks/plate appearances (note
that reaching on an error does not count towards OBP)
Slugging percentage is total bases on hits / at-bats (which
means walks and sacrifices don't count towards slugging)
OPS is simply adding those two numbers together.

### How do you calculate a player's on base percentage?

On base percentage
In baseball statistics, on base percentage (OBP) is a measure of
how often a batter gets to first base for any reason other than a
fielding error or a fielder's choice. It may be calculated as:
(H + BB + HBP) / (AB + BB + HBP + SF) OBP is sometimes referred
to as "on base average" or OBA.
It is possible for a player's on base percentage to be lower
than his batting average (H/AB). If a player had 2 hits and 5 at
bats with a sacrifice fly, his batting average would be .400 but
his on base percentage would be .333.
