About Runs Created
Runs created is a statistic created by Bill James and is used to estimate the number of runs that a hitter creates.
How to calculate:
We use the technical method in our calculator which is calculated as ((Hits + Walks – Caught Stealing + Hit by Pitch – Ground into Double Play) x (Total Bases x (0.26 x (Walks – Intentional Walks + Hit by Pitch)) + (0.52 x (Sacrifice Hits + Sacrifice Flies + Stolen Bases)))) / (At Bats + Walks + Hit by Pitch + Sacrifice Hits + Sacrifice Flies)
You also could use the basic calculation which is ((Hits + Walks) x Total Bases) / (At Bats + Walks), but we have found that this calculation doesn’t usually work as well as the technical one.
