What does OPS mean in softball stats?
Definition. OPS adds on-base percentage and slugging percentage to get one number that unites the two. It’s meant to combine how well a hitter can reach base, with how well he can hit for average and for power. It can also be used in evaluating pitchers; when used in that context, it is referred to as OPS against.
What is a good slugging percentage in softball?

Why is OPS a good stat?
OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) is the classic metric, and it’s very easy to use. OPS is useful because the two most important skills for a hitter are getting on base (be it with walks or with singles or a combination of the two) and power.
Is OPS better than batting average?
OPS correlates to runs much better than BA does, but there are flaws. It counts singles twice and walks once since singles are included in both OBP and SLG, but walks only in OBP. Singles are more valuable than walks in that they advance more runners, but they’re not twice as valuable.

What is a good ops in slow pitch softball?

So all in all, using OPS is bad math, and it pulls focus away from OBP and gives “extra credit” to players who hit for power, even though their offensive contributions may not be as important as a player who has a high OBP but a low(er) SLG.
What is the difference between OPS and OPS+?
OPS does not tell you how much a player was affected by factors such as his home ballpark’s dimensions or altitude. OPS+ attempts to adjust for those factors to give you a context-neutral number.
Has anyone ever batted.400 for a season?

Is on base percentage more important than batting average?
Because when you walk, you’re not making an out and you are preserving your scarce resource. On base percentage is better than batting average because it better accounts for this scarce resource and the most important job of a hitter at the plate – not making an out.
