Hit By Pitch Affecting Batting Average


Bill from Minnesota asks:

When a batter is hit by a pitch, how does being hit by a pitch affect one's batting average?

Being hit by a pitch counts as a plate appearance but not as an official at bat. The batter's batting average would not be affected by the hit by pitch.
