Does a base on balls count as an at bat
A base on balls counts as a plate appearance but not as an at bat. A base on balls does not affect a batter's batting average.


Addendum: it also counts as a time on base, and figures into the batters on base percentage. As well, if the bases are loaded, and the batter is walked, it counts as an R.B.I. for the batter.
