It is a fielders choice
No. This would be a fielders choice and would not count as a hit for the batter.
No. Only hits, walks, and times hit-by-pitch improve a hitter's OBP.

If scored as a Fielders Choice it will go down as 0-1 (an AB with no hit) -- tigersy2k3
Hit, error, fielders choice, hit by pitch, catchers interference, walk, dropped third strike
No it counts against a players average but if a run scores it counts as an rbi.
For the play you describe, it would be a hit. A fielder's choice is when a fielder chooses to throw to another base instead of 1st base to retire the batter. I doubt the center fielder had a chance to throw out the batter at 1st base.
It isn't a hit. It is a fielders choice.
a base hit is when u hit and get on base without: error (unless u would have been there despite the error) Fielders Choice (unless u would have been safe despite the FC) Interference
No it goes down as a fielders choice.
I AM A COLLEGE BASEBALL PLAYER ALL INFORMATION HERE IS 100% TRUE. A fielders choice does not count as a hit for the batter even though the batter reaches base safely. It counts as an out for the hitters batting average but RBI's, runs scored, stolen bases and any other effects of the batter reaching base safely count. In essence a fielders choice counts as an out because the fielder could have chose to get the batter out or another runner which means there was an out on the play. Also, you cannot assume a double play even if the ball hit was the easiest 4-6-3 which the fielders made an error on.
There are 7 ways. 1. Base Hit 2. Walk 3. Reach on an error 4. Strike 3 Pass Ball 5. Fielders Choice 6. Hit By Pitch 7. Catcher's Interference.
first choice would probably be first base
If the batter hits the ball, and the result is a force out, then the play is considered a "fielder's choice" no matter how unlikely it would have been for an out to have been made at first base. In the batter's statistics, it is counted as an at bat but not a hit.
If a ball hits the runner, the runner is out and the play is scored a hit for the batter.
1. Base Hit 2. BB 3. HBP 4. E 5. Fielders Choice 6. Dropped 3rd Strike 7. Catchers Interference 8. Runners
No hit it is a fielders choice
no, the fielder had no choice to throw out the hitter at first.
I believe it to be 8 1. hit by a pitch 2. intentional walk 3. walk 4. dropped third strike 5. fielding error 6. fielders choice 7. hit 8. catchers interference
Yes. If in the Official Scorer's opinion, the batter would have been out at first base had the fielder chosen to make that play then the play is scored as a fielder's choice. The batter reaches first base safely, but is not credited with a hit and is charged with an at-bat. He's officially 0 for 1 on that play.
The fielder made a decision to throw the batter out at first instead of throwing the runner out at home. This is considered a fielders choice.
Provided that there were no runner on 1st base and batter reached 1st before runner were tagged out, this is a hit. Batter alreay had first base, runner chose to go to 3rd, not forced. If he were forced, then it is a fielders choice.
In major leagues this is considered a hit and will be counted toward your batting average.
