I never thought of that, because Infinity made sense, so I never thought it could mean something else.
inf is infinity. noone can convnice me otherwise.
a lot of pitchers don't finish innings and only pitch fractions of innings... anyway... the reason I don't agree with inf meaning that is because I have seen people have no era and an infinite WHIP when they come out. i.e. a reliever comes in to face one batter, walks him and is taken out... the next pitcher gets the outs with that one runner not scoring -- the WHIP is INF, but the ERA is ----. if INF really meant Inning Not Finished, it would have been that entry in that column too...
