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.
If scored as a Fielders Choice it will go down as 0-1 (an AB with no hit) -- tigersy2k3
It does not count as an at bat
yes it's an at bat
No it goes down as a fielders choice.
A fielder's choice is always an at bat. The book would be marked as an FC with RBI.
yes. you ground to short with a man on first and they get the force at second... you are 0-1
This is not a sacrifice. It is counted as an RBI though unless there is a double play as result of the FC.
No. This would be a fielders choice and would not count as a hit for the batter.
Yes, the batter is credited with an at-bat and scored as a fielders choice.
cuz they left that man on
maybe... maybe not!
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
Yes Any event after a player appears at the plate -- even being hit by the pitcher on the first pitch -- is counted as a plate appearance.
It can't ... a balk can only be committed by a pitcher.
No. No error can ever be given when there is an out made on the play.
no, the fielder had no choice to throw out the hitter at first.
Yes you would get an RBI on a fielders choice. If a runner scores on any batted ball the batter will get an RBI, whether an out is made or not.
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.
