Encyclopedia > Shutout

In team sports, in American English, a shutout (a clean sheet in football) refers to a game in which one team prevents the opposing team from scoring. While possible, they are highly improbable in some sports, such as basketball. Football is a ball game played between two teams of eleven players, each attempting to win by scoring more goals than their opponent. ... Basketball is a team sport in which two teams of five active players each try to score points against one another by throwing a ball through a 10-foot high hoop (the basket) under organized rules. ...


They are usually seen as a result of effective defensive play even though a weak opposing offense may be as much to blame. Some sports credit individual players, particularly goalkeepers and starting pitchers, with shutouts and keep track of them as statistics; others do not. A football goalkeeper leaves the ground to parry a shot on goal In many team sports, a goalkeeper (termed goaltender, netminder, goalie, or keeper in some sports) is a designated player that is charged with directly preventing the opposite team from scoring by defending the goal. ... In baseball or softball, a starting pitcher, often abbreviated as starter, is the pitcher who pitches the first pitch to the first batter of a game. ...

Baseball

If the starting pitcher can pitch the entire game without giving up a run he earns a complete game shutout. The current record holder for most career shutouts is Walter Johnson with 110; the current active leader is Roger Clemens with 48 (tied with Kid Nichols for 25th all-time). This article does not cite any references or sources. ... In baseball, a complete game (denoted by CG) is the act of a pitcher pitching an entire game himself, without the benefit of a relief pitcher. ... Walter Perry Johnson (November 6, 1887-December 10, 1946), American professional baseball pitcher. ... William Roger Clemens (born August 4, 1962, in Dayton, Ohio), nicknamed The Rocket, is a starting pitcher for the New York Yankees, and is one of the preeminent Major League baseball pitchers of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. ... Kid Nichols of the Philadelphia Phillies at the West Side Grounds in 1905. ...


Though less than half of Johnson's record, Clemens' total is not likely to be reached by anyone else for some time, if at all, as pitchers rarely earn more than 1 or 2 shutouts per season today with the heavy emphasis on pitch counts and relief pitching (in fact, with the 2007 season halfway over no pitcher has more than 1 shutout so far). In today's game pitchers are frequently taken out of the game in the 7th or 8th inning even if the opposing team hasn't scored a run. A pitcher getting a complete game shutout today usually entails one of the following circumstances: getting through the game while throwing an unusually low number of pitches; having one's own team score a large number of runs (allowing the pitcher a "run cushion" to complete the game without relief, though on some times a pitcher is more likely to be relieved in this situation rather than "wastefully" wearing him down or risking injury); or the team has a need that day to keep an unusually overworked bullpen rested if possible. It may also be done if the pitcher is working on a rare feat such as a no-hitter or perfect game, for example on June 7, 2007, Curt Schilling pitched a complete game shutout in which the score ended 1-0. The only reason he was kept in such a close game was that he had a no-hitter going that was broken up with 2 outs in the ninth inning. An example of the rarity of the complete game shutout is with young pitcher Chien-Ming Wang of the New York Yankees. On August 2, 2006 against the Toronto Blue Jays he had a very good chance at achieving a shutout in two consecutive starts, an extremely rare feat today. However, despite a commanding 7-0 lead, he was taken out after 8 innings due to a combination of a high pitch count and unusually hot weather during the game. A relief pitcher warms up in the bullpen as the game goes on A relief pitcher or reliever is a baseball or softball pitcher who enters the game after the starting pitcher is removed due to injury, ineffectiveness or fatigue. ...

The term can also be used, however, to describe periods of time longer or shorter than one game.

Ice hockey

In ice hockey, a shutout is given to a team whose goaltender successfully prevents the other team from scoring and plays the entire game. The current record holder for most regular season career shutouts is Terry Sawchuk with 103 (See All-Time Regular Season Shutouts). The current modern-day record for a team as being shutout in a season is held by the Columbus Blue Jackets at sixteen, during the 2006-2007 NHL season.

Association Football

In football (soccer), this is known as a clean sheet.

A player (wearing the red kit) has penetrated the defence (in the white kit) and is taking a shot at goal. ...

The term first appeared in the 1930s and it derived from sports reporting in which the reporter would use separate pieces of paper to record different events of the game. If one team does not let in a goal, then that team's "details of goals conceded" column would appear blank, hence leaving a clean sheet. For example, two teams are playing (Team A and Team B), Team A win 4-0, they keep the clean sheet whereas Team B have conceded 4 goals, they do not. Face The 1930s (years from 1930–1939) were described as an abrupt shift to more radical and conservative lifestyles, as countries were struggling to find a solution to the Great Depression, also known in Europe as the World Depression. ... A team comprises many group of people or animals linked in a common purpose. ...


As football is a low-scoring game, it is very common for one team to score zero, or even both in a 0-0 goalless draw.


American Football

A shutout in American football is a fairly uncommon occurrence, usually happening only a few times a season. In the 2005 season, the New York Jets suffered a 0-27 loss to the Denver Broncos.[1] The following season, the Jets also suffered two shutouts, 0-41 to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and then 0-10 to the Chicago Bears. Several gambling associations[attribution needed] which allow people to place bets on American football games offer the promise that, if your team is shutout, your money will be refunded despite the fact that they were not victorious.[citation needed] United States simply as football, is a competitive team sport that is both fast-paced and strategic. ...

Rugby

Shutouts are not common in either form of rugby football, but they do happen. In fact the 2005 Gillette Rugby League Tri-Nations final was the first time the Australia had been 'nilled' since 1981.[citation needed] The Rugby League Tri-Nations (also known as the Gillette Tri-Nations for sponsorship reasons) is a rugby league tournament involving the top three nations in the sport: Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain. ...


The term 'shutout' is not in common usage in European sport, and thus is not applied to European rugby, and there is no alternative term for the occurrence of a team achieving a no score, except to say that the team score 'nil'. For example, the December 2006 Magner's Celtic League match between Munster and Connacht ended 12-0 to Munster.[2] It would be said that Munster won "twelve-nil." The Celtic League, currently known as the Magners League for sponsorship reasons, is an annual rugby union competition involving regional sides from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. ...

Generally, a well-disciplined team, defensively, as well as behaviorally (thereby not giving away penalty kicks) are most likely to not give away scores. Although this will also occur if there is a significant gulf in class between the two teams, for example, when Scotland beat Spain (who were playing in their only Rugby World Cup) 48-0 in the 1999 Rugby World Cup.[3] First international (also the worlds first) Scotland 4 - 1 England (27 March 1871) Largest win Scotland 100 - 8 Japan (13 November 2004) Worst defeat Scotland 10 - 68 South Africa (6 December 1997) World Cup Appearances 5 (First in 1987) Best result 4th 1991 The Scotland national rugby union team...
