Its in Ron Shandlers BB Forecaster.
A hitters batting average as calculated by multiplying the percentage of balls put in play CT (contact rate), by the chance that a ball in play falls for a hit. The likelihood that a ball in play falls for a hit is a product of the speed of the ball and distance it is hit (PX), and the speed of the batter (SX).
AL CT% x [(.000077 x PX) + (.00005 x SX) + .245]
NL 65 12 .252
