What does E3 stand for in baseball?

Error made by the first baseman

E3 is an acronym used in baseball scorebooks to record an error made by the first baseman. The term consists of E and 3, which is the player's position.

Baseball positions are sometimes referred to by numbers, which is useful for recording statistics in scorebooks. The positions and numbers are: 1-Pitcher, 2-Catcher, 3-First base, 4-Second base, 5-Third base, 6-Shortstop, 7-Left field, 8-Center field, and 9-Right field. An error by a fielder does not count as a hit and if a baserunner scores a run because of an error, the run is considered unearned instead of earned.
