Batting Average (often abbreviated as BA or AVG) is probably the oldest statistic used to determine the ability of a baseball player. It is determined by taking the number of hits a player has and dividing it by the number of at bats a player has. For example, Ty Cobb had 4,189 hits in his career in 11,435 at bats. 4,189 divided by 11,435 gives him a career .366 average.
