A Shutout (abbreviated to SO or SHO) occurs when one team keeps another team from scoring any runs for an entire game. As a pitching statistic, it is credited to a pitcher who keeps the opposing batters from scoring a run for a complete game.
If more than one pitcher on a team combine to complete a shutout, no pitcher is awarded a shutout as an individual statistic, although it can be said that the team itself "shutout" the opposing team.
The career record for shutouts by a Bull League pitcher is 22, held by Iron Arm. The single season record for shutouts is tied at 4, held by Niek Rodriguez (Battle Creek Attack) and by Knuckles Malone (Toronto Ducks), who achieved the record in his rookie year.
