Each statistic your players accumulate is worth a certain amount of points. For example, a single hit is worth one (1) point, a home run equals four (4) points and a pitching win gives you three (3) points.
Players are numbered 1 for pitcher, 2 for catcher, 3, 4, and 5 for first, second, and third base, respectively, 6 for shortstop, and 7, 8, and 9 for left, center, and right field respectively.
Definition. A stolen base occurs when a baserunner advances by taking a base to which he isn’t entitled. This generally occurs when a pitcher is throwing a pitch, but it can also occur while the pitcher still has the ball or is attempting a pickoff, or as the catcher is throwing the ball back to the pitcher.

I have LR MR SR (late relief, mid relief, strong relief ?) and LONG, RP 1/2, SM, and CL.
Definition. A changeup is one of the slowest pitches thrown in baseball, and it is predicated on deception. The changeup is a common off-speed pitch, and almost every starting pitcher owns a changeup as part of his arsenal.
A team at +2.5 is getting 2.5 runs. The plus sign means they are getting 2.5 runs added to their final score. So if they lose 5-3, you add 2.5 runs to their total, and now the bet wins 5.5 to 5. You can also make it so the favored team can lose by up to two runs or that the underdog can win by three runs.
As a whole, “6+4+3=2” is baseball slang for saying that a double play occurred. In this type of double play, the shortstop fields the ball, throws the ball to the second baseman for the first out, who then throws the ball to the first baseman for the second out.
Why is the shortstop #6 and not #5? This was because originally, in the early days of baseball, the shortstop was the fourth outfielder. Later, the shortstop was moved permanently to the infield but his number stuck at #6.
In baseball scorekeeping, a swinging strikeout is recorded as a K, or a K-S. A strikeout looking (where the batter does not swing at a pitch that the umpire then calls strike three) is often scored with a backwards K (ꓘ), and sometimes as a K-L, CK, or Kc (the ‘c’ for ‘called’ strike).

FA = fastball. FF = four-seam fastball. FT = two-seam fastball.
A “K” is used to refer to a strikeout in baseball because the letter “S” was already used to score a sacrifice. So Henry Chadwick, the inventor of the box score, began using the letter “K” in the 1860s because it is the last letter of “struck”, which was the common term for a strikeout at the time.
An illegal pitch may be quick pitch (i.e. a pitch made before the batter is properly set in the batter’s box), a pitch made while the pitcher is not in contact with the pitching rubber, or one in which he takes an extra step while making his delivery.
The shortstop positions himself between the third baseman and the second-base bag. The shortstop is considered the captain of the infield and takes charge on balls hit in the air as well as communication among infielders.
The shortstop is the sixth position because they were originally a shallow outfielder. With how light the baseballs were, outfielders needed a cut-off man between the outfield and the infield. When the quality of baseballs improved, the shortstop became an infielder and remained as the 6th position.
A flyout to left field would listed as F7. A lineout to center field might be L8, or F8 with a straight line above the F and the 8 to indicate a line drive.
In baseball and softball, a win–loss record (also referred to simply as a record) indicates the number of wins (denoted “W”) and losses (denoted “L”) credited to a pitcher. For example, a 20–10 win–loss record would represent 20 wins and 10 losses.
The Fielding positions are numbered. F1 - Pitcher. F2 - Catcher. F3 - 1st Base. F4 - 2nd Base.
H(1-33/X) and R(1-33/X): The runs scored by each team in each inning. e.g. " H1 " is the runs scored by the home team in the 1st inning, " R7 " is the runs scored by the road team in the 7th inning, " HX " is the runs scored by the home team in all extra innings.
The E on a baseball scoreboard stands for Errors and is the number of errors awarded to the defense during the duration of the game. This number calculates all the defensive errors per team and gives spectators a general idea of how well a team is doing defensively.
One such rarity is the immaculate inning. You’ve probably heard of it – an immaculate inning is when a pitcher strikes out all three batters in an inning, on three pitches each. The immaculate inning used to be very rare – there were none from 1929-52. But in 2019, there have been seven.
