What is Passed Balls - PB?

A baseball statistic that is recorded when a catcher is unable to secure a pitch that is ruled as catchable (i.e. not a wild pitch), resulting in a runner advancing to another base.

Sporting Charts explains Passed Balls - PB

In the case of a Passed Ball (PB), the judgment is based on the assumption that the catcher should have been able to catch and maintain control of the pitch that was thrown. In the case of an uncaught third strike, in which the batter reaches first base safely, a catcher can also be charged with a passed ball.
