There are two types of errors: fielder’s choice errors and throwing errors. Fielder’s choice errors occur when a fielder tries to make a play on a batted ball but his throw does not end up getting anyone out. Throwing errors happen when a fielder tries to make a play but his throw ends up going into foul territory or not even reaching the intended target.

Errors are not counted as hits, but they can still lead to runs being scored. In general, errors are more common in games where there are more balls put in play, such as games with high scoring totals. They are also more common in games where the fielders have to cover more ground, such as game played on larger fields.

Putouts

A putout, sometimes shortened to PO, is a statistic credited to a defensive player who records an out by a Tagging a runner with the ball when he is not touching a base (a tagout), or A catch of a batted or thrown ball that results in an out, or A forcing out of a runner by throwing the ball to another fielder who touches the base before the runner arrives.
