Frequently Asked Questions More Information about FreeSoftballStats.com
Do Walks or Sacrifices Count as an At-Bat?
No! Walks and sacrifices do not count as at bats. Only outs, hits, reaching on an error, and fielders choice count as at bats. When entering stats, do NOT enter an AB for any walk or sac. This must be done manually when entered.
How can I see past seasons?
The "batter stats" tab defaults to the current season only. There's two ways to see past stats. Clicking on a player's name will show you that player's career stats. Past seasons batter stats are available on the "team stats" page. Just click the "player stats" link on the season you'd like to view.
Why Can't I Delete a Player?
To preserve statistical integrity, players can only be deleted if they haven't accumulated any at bats. This helps keep an accurate team batting average. If you'd like to delete a player who already has stats, you'll have to go back and delete that players stats by editing any games they played in. If you'd like a player to stop showing up, you can edit the player and set them to inactive. Inactive players won't show up when adding game stats.
