What does E9 stand for in baseball?

Error made by the right fielder

E9 is a baseball acronym used to indicate a fielding error was made by the right fielder. The term consists of E and the player's position on the field.

An error by a fielder does not count as a hit and if a baserunner scores because of an error, the run is considered unearned instead of earned. Baseball positions may be referred to through numbers, which is useful for keeping track of scores. 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.
