If a fielder commits an error on the ball that you hit, you would not receive an at bat (just like getting a walk).

errors in baseballNo, errors do nothing to your batting average. Huh?That would depend on the play and situation. If the play was ruled a straight error, like grounding to the shortstop and the shortstop makes a wild throw to first, the batter is charged with an at bat but no base hit. The batter's average would go down. But if the batter gets a base hit to right field and the right fielder boots the ball and the batter makes it to third base, the batter would be credited with a hit and the outfielder would be credited with an error. In that case, the batter's average would go up.

Yes, if a hitter hits into a fielder's choice he gets credited for an at-bat and is NOT credited with a hit. Whether its an error or a fielder's choice the players batting average WILL decrease

What is the batting average when the count is two ball and two strikes with two outs?

Balls and strikes do not constitute a player's batting average. A batting average is calculated according to how many hits a batter has made divided by how many at-bats he has. For instance, Ichiro Suzuki had 680 At-Bats in the 2010 season. Out of those At-Bats he pulled in 214 hits. 214 divided by 680 is .315 and that is how you figure out a player's batting average.

Does fielders choice help the batters batting average?

A fielder's choice is just like an out and lower's a player's batting average since the fielder chose to put out another player instead, usually the lead runner... On the other hand, a sacrifice does not count against the batter because his intention was to advance the runner at his own expense.
