groundball percentage

+1 vote
Hi, if I have a GO/AO of 313/135, how can I make it into a GB%. I did one of the calculations of GO/GO+AO+LD = 66%.

I wanted to know if that's the correct way to calculating GB%

Let me know,thanks!

That looks right to me. I believe Fangraphs removes all bunts from their GB% calculation as well.

yeah from what I read it removes the sacrifice bunts. It includes the line outs that sums up the ground outs & fly outs, thanks for your answer.
but something does confuse me, GB% is all contacted balls. So if it's true I would have to count the hits on the ground & in the air also?
