Batting average and ERA

BaseballFilter: now that spring is here as well as baseball, I need an explanation of how to calculate batting average and ERA. Do outs (pop flys) count in your batting av? Foul tips?
And ERA: is it the average only of batters that score a run, and not just hits? What about a relief pitcher with someone on base who scores--does that count?
