Like I said, I'm terrible at Excel so I can't do it myself. :-o Although using IFH would include all the slow grounders with the 3B playing deep, while IFFB records both hits and outs for infield fly balls.

Do you use that xBABIP calc that you linked to? If so, I'm curious if you would use it to check a couple players against my numbers to see if you get the same xBABIPs.
