  • *is confused* Wow... I don't understand a single word of this! :D My dad would, though. He's tried to explain baseball to me several times, but for some reason I just don't get it... :) What do B, P, K, R, RBI, IP, and BB stand for? Hold on, let me guess. :D "B" stands for Baseball. (Brilliant, no?) "P" stands for... Popcorn. There is always popcorn at baseball games! K stands for... um... Krunchy Kandy. (Yes, I know it starts with a "C", but that's all I could think of...) *starts to get tired of the guessing game* Ok, just one more. R stands for... uh.... *scratches head, confused* Never mind... And I'm guessing that the numbers stand for something too... so if it says, 2B, that means, "Two Baseballs"... riiiight? :D

    Close.... well, not really.

    BB= walk ( when a pitcher throws four balls and the batter reaches)

    P= pitcher

    K= strikeout

    R= run scored

    RBI= run batted in

    IP= innings pitched

    1B= single

    2B= double

    3B= triple

    HR= home run

    SB= stoled base

    Hoped that help.... LOL :)
