An outfielder records an assist when he throws the ball into the infield and an out is recorded as a result. Outfield assists are one of the most commonly referenced types of assists.
Outfield assists often result from throws directly to a base, without the help of an infielder. However, if a relay throw is needed or if an infielder cuts the throw off to get an out at a different base, the outfielder is still credited with an assist. Similarly, if one outfielder touches the ball before another outfielder throws to the infield for an out, both outfielders are awarded an assist.
