A hold (abbreviated HLD or H) is awarded to a relief pitcher who:

  1. enters the game in a save situation;
  2. records at least one out;
  3. leaves the game without his team having relinquished the lead at any point.

Note that since the hold is not an official Major League Baseball statistic, the definition above can vary.
