Putout
An attempted putout at first base.

In baseball statistics, a putout (denoted by PO or fly out when appropriate) is given to a defensive player who records an out by one of the following methods:

  • Tagging a runner with the ball when he is not touching a base (a tagout)
  • Catching a batted or thrown ball and tagging a base to put out a batter or runner (a force out)
  • Catching a thrown ball and tagging a base to record an out on an appeal play
  • Catching a third strike (a strikeout)
  • Catching a batted ball on the fly (a flyout)
  • Being positioned closest to a runner called out for interference
