    i was at the astros game tonight and i noticed on the scoreboard the abbreviation "LG". It was R H E LG. this would be runs, hits, errors, and what? ive been a baseball fan all of may life and i can't figure out what it means. anybody have any idea? :confused:

    i looked it up on wikipedia but it wasn't listed in the baseball statistics section. its been killing me. i have to find out what it means.

    What kinds of numbers were showing up under LG?

    There's an LG in SLG, but I have no idea why the scoreboard would be tracking team slugging percentages ...

    I hate baseball abbreviations. I also don't understand the need for all the stats they keep, like slugging percentage. *shakes head*

    Could it have been LO and some broken lights? Some scoreboards have been showing left on base numbers.

    Only thing that comes to mind is "league."

    LG means league- commonly used for minor league level. What was displayed in the box?

    well i spoke to a friend of mine who coincidentally enough went to the game today and he assured me that it read LO not LG. it must mean left-on, as in left-on-base.
