Other ways of getting on base

Postby hooligan1 » Fri Oct 21, 2005 10:37 pm

Is there any way to figure out how many times a guy has gotten on due to things other than hit, walk or hit by pitch? As far as I know, those are the only stats that affect OBP. Correct? I'm curious if there's any way to see how many times players get on base due to error, wild pitch, passed ball or fielder's choice. Am I missing any other way to get on base?

Catcher or fielder interference and no there really isn't any published way to get the exact number that I know of.

That's pretty funny. I had to think for a second, but just a second.

In all efforts to be serious, I wonder why these things aren't tracked? Anybody have any ideas? It seems like a lot of headache, but you just know there is someone out there who has tracked these stats for their own use......

Curious.....

It's a good question. Speedsters like Jose Reyes get on base due to error more than other guys. They should get credit for that. Is there no metric for that?

Yeah, I know "they" always say that a guy can't be credited, per se, with getting on base due to an error, because if the fielder hadn't committed an error, the batter wouldn't have gotten on base in the first place. But I wonder how many of those errors are forced because of the skill with which a batter hits the ball or their speed in getting to first? It's not all caused by just sheer defensive ineptitude, by guys like Huff and Hafner, et al. It seems like there should be a way of crediting these guys with getting on base "by any means possible"......Just a thought.
