## About This Tool

The online Batting Average Calculator is used to calculate the batting average which is one of the most important statistics used in baseball measuring the performance of baseball hitters.

## Batting Average

The batting average is the standard measure that has been used to compare batters ever since the early years of professional baseball. It is calculated as the number of hits divided by the official number of at-bats and is expressed as a decimal to three places of accuracy.

## Formula

The batting average is calculated in the following way:

Batting Average = Total number of hits / Total number of at bats

For example, if a player has 200 at-bats, and has 70 hits, then his Batting Average is 70 / 200 = 0.350.
