Go to https://www.mlb.com/ and pick a team. Click on “Stats” and “Sortable Player Stats”. Create an Excel
file similar to the one you see above:
You want 10 Players (1 being a pitcher), games played, at bats, hits, singles (create a formula using =hits-…),
doubles, triples, homeruns, walks, hit by pitch, sacrifice fly. You also want a column for hitting average (using a
formula), slugging percentage (using a formula) and on base percentage (using a formula).
*Note that each header on the website has an explanation of what the column shows/means.

Highlight cells A2 – J2. With the cells highlighted right click and select Format Cells…
Click on the alignment tab and set the Orientation to 90 degrees. Set the Horizontal to Center and the
Vertical to Bottom. Click OK, the labels should now be rotated and centered.
Note: To highlight multiple cells in a row or column, click on the first value, then hold control, shift and use
the arrow keys to select the other values in the row/column.

Right click on the A in column A and change the width of column A to 20 (see screen shots below). Change
the widths of column B to J to 5 (note: you can select all the columns at once by left clicking on B and
dragging you mouse to J, then left click on any of the columns you selected).

Enter the formula for singles, average, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage.

Where you see ####### you will need to enter in a 0. Do you know why?
In cells A12-A15 type: Totals, Min, Max and Average (see below).
Do not fill in total, min, max, and average for columns if it doesn’t make mathematical sense to do so (ie
meaningless information).
In the Totals row determine the totals in cells B12, C12, D12, E12, G12, H12 and I12, using =SUM()
formula. For example, you would type in B12 =SUM(B3:B10).
In the Min row determine the minimum in cells B13 – J13, using =MIN() formula. For example, you would
type in B13 =MIN(B3:B10).
In the Max row determine the maximum in cells B14 – J14, using =MAX() formula. For example, you
would type in B14 =MAX(B3:B10).
In the Average row determine the average in cells B15 – J15, using =AVERAGE() formula. For example,
you would type in B15 =AVERAGE(B3:B10).

Highlight cells A2 to J2, right click and select Format Cells…
Select the Fill tab and choose the turquoise colour, and select OK.
Repeat for cells A3 to A10 and A12 to A15.

Highlight cells A2 to J10, right click and select Format Cells …
Select the Borders tab and choose Outline and Inside buttons under the presets, and select OK.
