A passed ball is not an error on the catcher and not scored as such. However, for the purposes of determining earned vs unearned runs for the pitcher, it is treated as an error.


Correct.

Also, for determining earned vs. unearned, subsequent events will also be used. E.g. if a runner goes to 2nd on a PB with 2 outs and scores on a single, then the 3rd out - unearned run. If, instead, next guy hits a HR, then 3rd out - earned run (as he'd have scored with or without the PB).

With WP, doesn't matter - earned run in both instances.

As with basically every other ER vs. UER situation there are exceptions. If the passed ball was on a third strike then the runs scored on the HR would be unearned.

Doesn't it also matter how the runner got on base in the first place? What if a batter reaches on an error, steals second, gets sacrificed to third, then makes it home on a wild pitch. Is that run earned?

If the runner reaches first on an error that would have put him out it doesn't matter how he scores, its an unearned run.
