### What is h 11 in baseball?

um.. it depends. "h" can mean two different things. it can mean
that a batter has 11 hits, which means that a player hit the ball
and reached base with out being tagged out, thrown out, or reaching
on a fielders choice. if the "h" is reffering to a pitcher, it
means the pitcher has 11 holds, which is where the game is close, a
relief pitcher can come in and "hold" the game by not giving up a
run so that the closer can pitch and "save the game. I hope this
answers you question.

### Recently at a MLB game I saw on the scoreboard under the players stats WHIP. What does that mean?

WHIP stands for Walks plus Hits per Inning
Pitched and is a relatively new statistic for pitchers. Add
the number of walks a pitcher allows to the number of hits a
pitcher allows and divide by the number of innings pitched. This
gives you the pitcher's WHIP. Like ERA, the lower the WHIP the
better. Example: A pitcher has pitched 100 innings, given up 30
walks and 90 hits. Add the number of walks allowed to the number of
hits allowed (30 + 90 = 120) and divide by the number of innings
pitched (120 / 100 = 1.2). The pitcher's WHIP is 1.2.
