In baseball statistics, a putout (denoted by PO or fly ball 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 they are not touching a base
  • Catching a batted or thrown ball and tagging a base to put out a batter or runner
  • Catching a thrown ball and tagging a base to record an out on an appeal play
  • Catching a third strike cleanly without the need to throw to first base to retire the batter.
  • Catching a batted ball on the fly
  • Being positioned closest to a runner called out for interference
