FORMULA #24: PITCHER'S ERROR

PSOM Error = (E * 1458) / IP

Pitcher's error = (actual errors * 1458) / League Innings Pitched

how it works: The formulas in todays issue are examples of proportion formulating. The pitcher's error formula, identical to any other fielder's error formula, determines how many errors would be committed if the pitcher pitched every inning of every game. It would look like this:

Errors : Innings Pitched :: ? : 1458 (162 games * 9 inn.)

To determine the amount of errors a pitcher would make if he pitched every inning of a season, you would multiply the errors by 1458, then divide by the innings the pitcher has pitched for the season.

This formula is highly (+93%) reliable. Of course, it's best when your pitcher made no errors.
