## How is OPS calculated???

### How is OPS calculated???

I'm pretty sure its OBS + Slugging Percentage. But last night i had the best night ever. With my 12 player team having totals of 53 AB & 21 Hits w/ 8 HR & 48 TB. I'm sure thats not what is needed to calculate OPS. but here is Justin Morneaus line from yesterday.

6/10 3-HR's 1-BB 0-K 15-TB - he had 3 singles and 3 homeruns. and batted 600. Is this enough to know what his ops is. How do we calculate that.

Overall i had a biggest night ever and my ops hardly budged, i went up but another team that didn't do better than me surpassed me in OPS. I'm just confused. I see OPS numbers liek 3.600 & 2.154 & 1.600. I thought that if someone was on base 100% of the time their OBS would be 1.000, if so what is the other 2.600 added in to the 3.600 number. I guess my real trouble is how is slugging calculated if 1.000 is the highest you can get for OBS, then slugging is all im having trouble with.

The highest slugging you can have is 4.000, if you hit a home run every AB. The formula is TB(total bases)/AB

On base percentage:

Slugging percentage:

OPS (Onbase percentage Plus Slugging percentage):

Max OBP = 1.000
Max SPCT = 4.000
Max OPS = 5.000

Fielder's choice is accounted for in at-bats. When players ground into a fielder's choice, they are credited as 0-for-1. that's taken care of in the denominator of both OBP and SLG% equations.
