L has 2 meanings
1. What does L stand for?


An acronym used to keep track of the amount of games a player or team has lost.

The acronym commonly appears as a sports statistic. In baseball, it is often used to measure a pitcher's success, which is unfair since a pitcher relies on his team to score runs for him in order to get the W and not the "L."


He has 16 W and 5 L with an ERA of 2.60.
Wow, that's pretty good!
