Instructions for Baseball OPS Calculator
1. Under Game 1 tab, enter player numbers starting in G3, just to the right of the red player codes. If you want to keep season statistics, each player will need to be in the same position for each game.
2. For each at bat during the game, starting in boxes A2 through D2, enter the player code, whether or not they reached base (either a 0 or a 1), the slugging percentage for the at bat (0 for non hit, 1 for single, 2 for double, 3 for triple, 4 for home run). Then enter an r for a right handed pitcher or a l for a left handed pitcher.
3. Skip (enter nothing at all) for an at bat where a batter reaches on an error.
4. After you enter the information, all of the relevant columns will automatically update from H3 to AB23 on both the game and season pages.
5. Change the name of each game page on spreadsheet to name opponent or date of game.
6. You can save or open this file as an xlsx file if you use Microsoft Excel, and all data will update correctly.
7. You can use this for up to 40 games in a season, and may use for multiple seasons. There is nothing more to buy ever.
Explanation of Statistics
1. OB%- On base percentage- number of times on base divided by number of plate appearances, with reached on error not counting
2. Slugging%- Number of bases achieved through hits divided by at bats
3. OPS- On base percentage plus slugging percentage
4. Spread- The difference between your performance versus right or left handed pitching. A positive number indicates you are better against right handed pitching, a negative number is better against left handed pitching. The more distance from zero, the bigger the difference between your right or left handed performance.
