Earned runs are runs that are scored because of hits stolen bases. Un-earned runs are those where a runner gets on base because of an error and eventually scores. The earned run average (ERA) is calculated by taking the total number of earned runs scored against a pitcher and dividing that by the total number of innings that pitcher pitched. The lower the ERA the better the pitcher, usually.

Batting average in softball is the number of hits divided by the number of at bats. Walks are not calculated as at bats or hits, as well as hit by pitches. A reached on error counts as an at bat, but does not count as a hit.
