TB = 1B + 2(2B) + 3(3B) + 4(HR)

In baseball statistics, total bases refers to the number of bases a player has gained with hits, i.e., the sum of his hits weighted by 1 for a single, 2 for a double, 3 for a triple and 4 for a home run. Only bases attained from hits count toward this total.

Common baseball statistics report the total number of hits (H) and the number of doubles (2B), triples (3B), and home runs (HR). Singles can be represented by the formula 1B = H − 2B − 3BHR, which is to say "all hits that are not doubles, triples, or home runs." The total bases (TB) can be calculated by combining this formula with the one given in the box, which yields the simple formula TB = H + (2B) + 2(3B) + 3(HR).
