BASEBALL CARD GLOSSARY YR the year the player played for a given team. TEAM the team played for during the year. Major League teams are represented by the team name ( Tigers, Giants, etc.) . Minor League teams are represented by the city in which the tram resides ( Nashville, Eugene, etc. ) AVG this number represents the player's batting average . This average is the decimal equivalent of the ratio of hits to official at bats. G the number of games the player appeared in for the team. AB this represents the number of official at bats the player had during the season. Official at bats (AB) do not include walks (BB) or sacrifice hits (bunts, sacrifice files). Sacrifice hits do not count as at bats because the player makes an expected out in order to advance the runner(s). R the number of runs the player scored (times he crossed home plate). H the number of hits a player got during the season. This number represents the total singles, doubles, triples and home runs the player accumulated during the season. 2B the number of doubles or times the player reached second base safely due to a hit. 3B the number of triples or times the player reached third base safely due to a hit. HR the number of home runs the player hit during the season. RBI the number or runs batted in that the player was credited with during the season. This means that other players scored runs due to the player's hitting performance. BB the number of walks (also known as bases on balls ) the player received during the season. SO the number of strikeouts the player had during the season. SB the number of stolen bases the player had during the season. PBS MATHLINE® MSMP Fantasy Baseball Part 1: Activity Sheet

Fantasy Baseball Player Guidelines Use the following guidelines to help you determine whether or not you would like to keep certain players for your team. Although these guidelines do not represent everything you should consider, they'll be helpful when you receive your initial draft of players. BATTING AVERAGE below .220 weak hitter: you won't want to keep unless their other statistics (OB%, HR : Cum., AB ratio, SO : Cum. AB ratio) are considered favorable. .220 - .250 low average to average hitter: again, check their other statistics and weigh your choices. .250 - .300 good, solid hitter; more than likely you will want to keep a player of this caliber unless other statistics are unfavorable or you are able to trade for a player with better overall statistics. .300 & up excellent hitter: this could be your superstar. Look over the other statistics but expect to keep this player. ON-BASE PERCENTAGE The opinion of a group of student experts: "We like to see a player that has an on-base percentage that is 60 to 100 points higher than their batting average. We also feel that this percentage should be .340 or higher: The higher the percentage, the better!" HR : CUM. AB (UNIT) RATIO

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
