What is OPS and what does it mean for hitters?

Do you ever notice that stat next to batting average labelled "OPS?" It stands for On-base percentage. It is a stat that tells you how often you get on base - hits, walks, or hit by pitches - in relation to how many at bats you have, the walks you earned, the hit by pitches you have, and the sacrifice flies you have hit. All time leader, who else? Ted Williams.
