Yes, the batter is credited with an at-bat and scored as a fielders choice.
It counts as making an out (an 0 for 1) however you get an RBI. If it is a double play, however, no RBI is awarded.
A fielder's choice is always an at bat. The book would be marked as an FC with RBI.
This is not a sacrifice. It is counted as an RBI though unless there is a double play as result of the FC.
No it counts against a players average but if a run scores it counts as an rbi.
Yes, the batter will usually be given an RBI on a Fielder's Choice in the event of a run scoring the only way the home team's official scorer will not give him an RBI on a Fielder's Choice is in event of the runner in the scorer's viewer not originally being able to score on a player and was only able to do so as a result of the defensive team's miscue.
If scored as a Fielders Choice it will go down as 0-1 (an AB with no hit) -- tigersy2k3
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.
It is a fielders choice
Anytime the batter is put out at 1st base on a batted ball it is not considered a fielders choice, it is simply a put out. Now in your scenario if the catcher would have thrown home and the runner coming from 3rd is out and the batter is safe at 1st, then in that case it would be a fielders choice
maybe... maybe not!
It does not count as an at bat
No. An RBI is not awarded on an error. A fielder's choice, a sacrifice, a walk with the bases loaded or a hit. That's about it. A fielding error does not warrant an RBI.
Yes. There are only a few times that a batter helps a teammate score but does not get an RBI. Example 1: Bases loaded, 0 outs, batter grounds into double play 2nd baseman to first baseman, runner at third scores. The batter is not credited with an RBI. Example 2: Runner on 3rd, 2 outs, batter hits a routine groundball to shortstop, but the shortstop makes an erro. The batter is not credited with an RBI because if the ball was played cleanly the run would not have scored.
It can't ... a balk can only be committed by a pitcher.
yes it's an at bat
No it goes down as a fielders choice.
No. No error can ever be given when there is an out made on the play.
