OPS

Meaning

On-base Plus Slugging Percentage

A baseball stats acronym that refers to a player's ability to get on base and to hit for power.

The stat is calculated by simply adding a player's OBP and SLG. The number you get is the player's OPS. An OPS of .9000 or higher is great and usually held by the league leader. The highest OPS for a single season is held by Barry Bonds in 2004 at 1.4217. The highest all-time OPS is held by Babe Ruth at 1.1636. One criticism of the stat is that it doesn't take into account a player's base running and clutch hitting ability.

Example

"I can't believe no one on our team has an OPS of .7000 or higher.
Yeah, we suck."
