At-Bats

In baseball, an at bat (AB) or time at bat is a batter's turn at batting against a pitcher that is credited unless the turn ends under certain circumstances. At bats are used to calculate certain statistics, including batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage. Whereas plate appearances count completed turns at batting, at bats are a subset of plate appearances. A batter does not receive credit for an at bat if their plate appearance ends under the following circumstances: He receives a base on balls (BB). He is hit by a pitch (HBP). He hits a sacrifice fly or a sacrifice hit (also known as sacrifice bunt).
