Format cell like text BEFORE entering data or enter an apostrophe (') in
front of data, e.g. '8/8

if you will not write = sign then it will not do any calculation unless
your cell format is date or number format .... make you cell format as
text but if you want calculation on it then you can revert it back ....

If you're going to use excel to do calculations, put the at bats in one cell and
the hits in another. Your calculations will become lots easier.

Even if you're not going to calculations now, you may in the future.
