The question's asked how do you calculate at bats. Number one, and an at bat is anytime the player appears on the offensive batting order, and appears at the bat. Whether he gets a hit or he reaches on an error or he records an out as a batter that is an at bat. The exceptions to those rules is if he walks due to a base on ball, which does not count as a time at bat. Or if he is hit by a pitch, which does not count as a time at bat. Or if he hits a sacrifice fly where a guy scores from third or if he sacrifice bunts a guy to the next base. If a guy is on first, and you successfully complete a sacrifice bunt whether he gets to second safely even though they retire you that does not count as an at bat. So to calculate at bats you recorded every time the guy is up here at bat with the exceptions I have given you. Sacrifice bunts, sacrifice fly, hits batsman, and base on balls. Everything else is calculated as an at bat in baseball.
