Best Answer

ERA stands for Earned Run Average. The number of innings per game determines how ERA is calcuated. In Major League Baseball they play 9 innings so ERA is calculated with this equation, Earned Runs divided by 9. High School Baseball (at least where I am located) plays 7 innings as a regulation length game. In this case a pitcher's ERA is Earned Runs divided by 7. In Little League the a regulation game is 6 innings, so ERA would be determined by Earned Runs divided by 6. If you are playing a game and it goes in to extra innings then a pitcher's ERA is not affected by the extra innings. If a regulation game is 6 innings, and the game goes into the seventh inning, then a pitcher's ERA is still determined by # of earned runs divided by 6. In summary ERA is ALWAYS determined by the amount of Earned Runs allowed divided by the number of innings played (not including extra innings).

What are the worst era's since 1900 for a season with 150 innings or more?

Well, I can't swear they're the worst of the worst but the 1930 Philadelphia Phillies hold the MLB record for highest team ERA in a season at 6.71. That season, Les Sweetland pitched 167 innings to an ERA of 7.71 (record was 7-15) and Claude Willoughby pitched 153 innings to an ERA of 7.59 (record was 4-17). Jim Walkup of the 1937 St. Louis Browns pitched 150 1/3 innings to an ERA of 7.36 and record of 9-12. His career 6.74 ERA over 462 1/3 innings is the highest in MLB's modern era for pitchers that threw at least 400 innings in a career. More recently, Jose Lima had a 6.99 ERA in 168 2/3 innings (record was 5-16) for the 2005 Kansas City Royals and a 6.65 ERA in 196 1/3 innings (record was 7-16) for the 2000 Houston Astros.

Can you show how to calculate earned run average in girls fast pitch softball if your daughter has pitched 17 innings and allowed 4 earned runs what would her ERA be?

1) Multiply the total number of earned runs by the number of innings in a full game (most fastpitch leagues play 7 inning games but some youth leagues play 6 inning games). 2) Divide the total number of innings pitched into the number derived from 1) above and round to the second decimal place. Using 17 innings pitched and 4 earned runs ... For games that are 7 innings in length, the ERA would be 1.65 (4 times 7 equal 28 and 28 divided by 17 equal 1.647 which is rounded to 1.65). For games that are 6 innings in length, the ERA would be 1.41 (4 times 6 equal 24 and 24 divided by 17 equal 1.411 which is rounded to 1.41).


How do you compute ERA in baseball?

Earned Runs Average is computed by the formula: 9 x (Earned Runs Allowed/Innings Pitched). For example, if a pitcher threw 7 complete innings, allowing 4 earned runs, the formula would be: 9 x (4/7) = 5.14 ERA.
