It does not count as an at bat
If scored as a Fielders Choice it will go down as 0-1 (an AB with no hit) -- tigersy2k3
yes it's an at bat
A fielder's choice is always an at bat. The book would be marked as an FC with RBI.
Yes, the batter is credited with an at-bat and scored as a fielders choice.
No it goes down as a fielders choice.
Yes, it counts as an at bat.
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.
yes. you ground to short with a man on first and they get the force at second... you are 0-1
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
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.
A fielder's choice when no one is forced out counts as an at-bat without a hit just like it would if an out were recorded. If a player grounds into a fielder's choice in his first at-bat of the season, he would be 0-1 and have a batting average of .000.
For on-base percentage, it still counts as an at bat and the hitter is not credited with an 'on base' so whether its an error or a fielder's choice the player's on-base percentage will decrease
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.
During an infield choice, the at-bat is counted and the hitter is not given a hit, nor does it increase their On-Base Percentage.
The at bat is recorded like an out so they would be 0 for 1, FC, even though they reached base safely.
cuz they left that man on
yes any time up at bat counts
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.
maybe... maybe not!
