    • It's based on the percentage of plays the player makes vs making an error. If your outfielder has 3 plays to him, but drops one of the balls, his fielding percentage is .666 instead of 1.000. Obviously, you want the higher percentage, as that's used to determine where you place in your standings/matchup.
