Meaning of RBI in Baseball

Many people wonder: What is an RBI in baseball ?

RBI is a statistic in baseball that stands for “run batted in”. It is used to give proper credit to a batter, for making a play that helps another teammate to score a run.

RBI = run batted in

In more simple words, any “runs” scored by a teammate, due to the batter making “an action” to help. For instance, if the hitter makes a base hit (meaning he hits the ball and runs to base), allowing another runner to score from third base, then the runner is credited with the RUN, but the hitter is credited with the RBI.

The most common examples of RBIs are run-scoring hits. However, players also receive an RBI for a bases-loaded walk or hit by pitch. Players can earn RBIs when they make outs, as well, provided the “out” results in a run or runs (except, as noted above, in the case of double plays).

RBIs, AVGs and home runs, are the best way to assess how good a hitter is.

Example of RBI

  1. Imagine there is one man standing in 3rd base. The hitter hits downfield and so the man on third base makes the run. The hitter will be credited 1 RBI.
  2. Imagine the batter has all bases loaded and he hits a home run. The hitter will get 3 RBIs, one for each man in base that scored a run.

Best RBI Record in 2019

During MLB Season 2019, Anthony Rendon of the Washington National recorded the most RBIs in the league.

RBI = 126
Runs = 117
Home Runs = 34
