How to Calculate Slugging Percentage

In baseball statistics (sabermetrics), one of the most useful measures of a batter's power is his slugging percentage or slugging average, SLG. A baseball player's slugging percentage indicates the number of bases gained per time at bat. The slugging percentage of a player is not actually a percent, but a number that can in theory range from 0 and 4. Currently, the slugging percentage record is held by Barry Bonds, who earned an SLG of 0.863 in 2001.
