**How to Calculate:**

This is the calculation for the technical version of runs created.

(( H + BB – CS + HBP – GIDP ) x ( TB + ( .26 x ( BB – IBB + HBP )) + ( .52 x ( SH + SF + SB ))) / ( AB + BB + HBP + SH + SF )) = Runs Created

AB – At Bats

BB – Walks

CS – Caught Stealing

HBP – Hit by Pitch

GIDP – Grounded Into Double Play

TB – Total Bases

IBB – Intentional Walks

SH – Sacrifice Hits

SF – Sacrifice Flies

**About Runs Created:**

Runs Created is a stat invented by baseball statistician Bill James. Runs Created is supposed to be an accurate measure of a player’s offensive contribution to the team.
