FORMULA # 25: PITCHER'S BALK

pSOM BALK = (BALK * 290) / IP

Pitcher's Balk rating = (actual balks * 290) / League inning Pitched

how it works: This formula is an exercize in reverse mathmatics. If you multiply any pitcher's BALK rating by his Innings Pitched, then divide that total by the pitcher's actual balks, you will have a number right about 290. The nominal sway in this formula may be due to team balk records. Still, the formula will be within 1 of over 90% of the SOM pitchers.
