Groundball Percentage. The number of groundballs that a pitcher allows as a percentage of all balls hit into play. Our definition of GB% does not count line drives or popups as groundballs, and considers all batted balls put into play, not just those that result in outs. Because of this definition, the league average GB% is somewhat lower than than what may be listed in other venues, or about 44%.
