The box score lists the line score as well as individual and team performance in the game. The statistics used are those recorded by the official scorer of each game. The following box score is of a notable game in baseball history, Game 6 of the 1991 World Series.
Left on base can be viewed as both an individual statistic or as a team statistic. In an individual batter’s case, it refers to how many men remain on base after that batter makes an out at the plate, as the batter has failed to do his job to score those runners – or at least put himself in a position to score.
The five most important basic rules in baseball are balls and strikes, tagging up, force outs, tag outs, and nine players allowed in the lineup.
IP: Innings pitched. H: Hits allowed. R: Runs allowed. ER: Earned runs allowed.
IO (in and out)
L - Losses (while pitching) LOB - Left on Base. LOB% - Left on Base Percentage. OBA - Opponents’ Batting Average.
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.
Hold runner: Catcher signs that signal to hold a runner are the same as the pickoff, but without actually throwing to the base. Shake off pitch: Sometimes a catcher will tell the pitcher to intentionally shake his or her head at a certain pitch in an attempt to confuse the batter.
The term inning in baseball comes from the Old English innung — the gerund form of innian “to get within, put or bring in” — and was originally used in the sense of “a team’s turn in a game” in 1738.
Sensing that an official ruling was necessary as more and more baseball teams were formed, the Knickerbockers decided to form a committee in 1856 to tackle the issue. The desire for more competitive defense won out, and nine innings – and nine men – became the standard for good.
20 overs = 120 balls, so each team innings in this type of cricket will be a maximum of 120 balls long. As with all types of cricket, the innings could end earlier if the batting team gets bowled out or chases down their target score successfully.
Error (E) When a fielder misplays a ball hit at him, which under normal circumstances would result in an out. Earned Runs (ER) Any run that is directly attributable to the pitcher. Earned Run Average (ERA)
Definition. Slugging percentage represents the total number of bases a player records per at-bat. Unlike on-base percentage, slugging percentage deals only with hits and does not include walks and hit-by-pitches in its equation. Slugging percentage differs from batting average in that all hits are not valued equally.
A player is awarded a run if he crosses the plate to score his team a run. When tallying runs scored, the way in which a player reached base is not considered. If a player reaches base by an error or a fielder’s choice, as long as he comes around to score, he is still credited with a run.
Input/output (I/O or IO): In computer science, the abbreviation I/O or IO stands for input/output, i.e., the communication of information systems such as computers with the outside world. Similar to the generic TLD . app, for example, which is the perfect extension for developers of mobile apps, the .
F means Final, indicating the game is complete.
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.
Can a eh play the field? In baseball, an “eh” is a player who can play any position on the field other than pitcher and catcher. An eh may bat ten players, with no change to the batting order.
Does a homerun count as an RBI? A home run counts as at least one RBI, but can result in up to four RBIs. A single RBI is usually awarded to the batter who hit the home run, and additional RBIs are given to any runners who happened to be on base when the home run was hit.
In baseball statistics, total bases (TB) is the number of bases a player has gained with hits. It is a weighted sum for which the weight value is 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.
