What does SLG stand for?

Slugging percentage

A baseball stats acronym that measures a player's offensive power.

The stat is calculated by dividing a player's total number of accumulated bases by his number of at bats. To be more specific, a single equals 1 base, a double equals 2 bases, a triple equals 3 bases, and a home run equals 4 bases. After totaling the number of bases a player has earned you then divide that total by the number of at bats he has had. The number you get is the player's slugging percentage. You can use this stat to calculate a player's OPS by adding it to his OBP.


I didn't realize how rare it is for a player to have a SLG higher than .5000
