## About This Tool

The online WHIP Calculator is used to calculate the walks plus hits per inning pitched (WHIP) used in baseball statistics.

## WHIP Definition

In baseball statistics, WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) is a sabermetric measurement of the number of baserunners a pitcher has allowed per inning pitched. It is a measure of a pitcher's ability to prevent batters from reaching base. Comparing to ERA, WHIP measures a pitcher's effectiveness against the batters faced more directly.

## Formula

The WHIP calculation formula is as following:

WHIP = (Number of hits allowed + Number of walks allowed) / Number of Innings Pitched
