There are many terms for various statistics in baseball, most of them with abbreviations. Below are a list of abbreviations, their full names, and their meanings, as used in the Fielding tables.

Primary StatisticsEdit

EEdit

Errors (the number of times the player attempted to record an assist or an out but failed to do so - "mistakes").
