Baseball Slugging Percentage
A number expressing a player's average effectiveness in making extra-base hits, calculated by dividing the total number of bases (from all singles, doubles, triples, and home runs) by the number of official at bats also slugging average. The Slugging Percentage is the most effecting method to determine the player's hitting power. It is calculated as total bases divided by at bats. When two players have the same or almost the same 'Batting Average' you might use the slugging percentage to determine which player is better.
SLG = (Total bases) / (Number of official at bats)
Total bases = (Home Runs * 4) + (Triples * 3) + (Doubles * 2) + (Singles)
Number of official at bats = Home Runs + Triples + Doubles + Singles + Outs
