# Return games

To calculate the back (GB) of a team of baseball games, just uses the following formula:

Return games = (difference of WINS) + the difference in losses / 2

The formula above applies only to a team and it is used to determine the number of GB, a team from the East in the first place.

The difference of WINS is always positive, so is the difference in losses

Therefore, in calculating of GB, always making larger number smallest number so that the difference is always positive

Example:

Use the following table to calculate the GB between first place and the other teams

GB between first and second place = (difference of WINS) + the difference in losses / 2

Differences in wins = 34-30 = 4

Differences of loss = 24-22 = 2

GB between first and second place = (4 + 2) / 2

GB between first and second place = (6) / 2

GB between first and second place = 3

GB between first and third place = (difference of WINS) + the difference in losses / 2

Differences in wins = 34-28 = 6

Differences of loss = 26-22 = 4

GB between first and third place = (6 + 4) / 2

GB between first and second place = (10) / 2

GB between first and second place = 5

GB between first and fourth place = (difference of WINS) + the difference in losses / 2

Differences in wins = 34-24 = 10

Differences of loss = 28-22 = 6

GB between first and third place = (10 + 6) / 2

GB between first and second place = (16) / 2

GB between first and second place = 8

Note that the above formula can be used to calculate that the dos for other sports games. It doesn’t have to be baseball only.
