    The game is probably designed to reflect real life. Omar Moreno was a base stealer in his day, but he was never able to steal home. He tried just twice and was thrown out both times. Stealing home is a difficult thing to do. Many of the greatest base stealers of all time did not have much success stealing home. Lets take 10 of the best base stealers from the 1950's through the 1980's. Moreno, Lou Brock, Bert Campaneris, Maury Wills, Rickey Henderson, Ron Leflore, Tim Raines, Vince...

    It IS included in the calculation for OBP: On Base Percentage (aka OBP, On Base Average, OBA) is a measure of how often a batter reaches base. It is approximately equal to Times on Base/Plate appearances. The full formula is OBP = (Hits + Walks + Hit by Pitch) / (At Bats + Walks + Hit by Pitch + Sacrifice Flies)

    MLB counts both sacrifice flies and sacrifice bunts as plate appearances.

    That's what I was trying to say - Sac FLYS are in OBP, so that is why it can be higher. On Baseball Moguls stat lines, it only lists Sac HITS, therefore you CAN'T SEE the actual numbers that calc the OBP, you just have to assume that there were Sac FLYS, which is why OB is higher than BA.

    irongoalie, looks like we are both right. Sac Flies are counted in OBP; however, Clay defines a sacrifice hit (SH) as "A sacrifice hit (abbreviated 'Sac' on the Scouting Report) is awarded whenever a player successfully bunts to advance a runner even though the batter himself is thrown out at first. A sacrifice hit counts as a plate appearance, but not as an At Bat." According to MLB, sacrifice bunts are not counted as a plate appearance; thus they are not counted in OBP.
