How do you calculate a pitcher's ERA?

Method 2 Calculating Earned Run Average
  1. Gather your information. You will have three numbers to use in your calculation.
  2. Make the first calculation. For this, divide the number of earned runs by the number of innings played.
  3. Multiply this number with the total number of innings.
  4. Test your number.

Also asked, how many innings do you need to qualify for the ERA title?

(Qualifying for the ERA title requires a pitcher to pitch one inning per game played by their team. In most years, that is 162 innings. From 1901 to 2013, every pitcher who threw at least that many innings managed at least one win.)

What is considered an earned run in baseball?

In baseball, an earned run is any run that was fully enabled by the offensive team's production in the face of competent play from the defensive team. Conversely, an unearned run is a run that would not have been scored without the aid of an error or a passed ball committed by the defense.

How do they count innings pitched?

Innings pitched. In baseball, innings pitched (IP) are the number of innings a pitcher has completed, measured by the number of batters and baserunners that are put out while the pitcher is on the pitching mound in a game. One out counts as one-third of an inning, and two outs counts as two-thirds of an inning.
