If scored as a Fielders Choice it will go down as 0-1 (an AB with no hit) -- tigersy2k3
Yes, the batter is credited with an at-bat and scored as a fielders choice.
Earned. Unearned runs only apply to cases where an error allows a runner to score where they otherwise would not have.
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
I assume you mean if you're score keeping and not saying "How would the batter who becomes a runner be able to score a run on the play." If you're referring to score keeping I believe you would just note that the batter reach first base as a result of the fielders choice by 3Bman. FC - 5.
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.
Yes. A fielder's choice is when a defensive player plays a ground ball and tries to throw out a runner other than the batter. A fielder's choice can be credited when no out is recorded on the play if the official score keeper determines that the batter would have been out if the play went directly to first. In this case it would be a Fielders Choice and the batter would not be credited with a hit.
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.
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.
A fielder's choice is always an at bat. The book would be marked as an FC with RBI.
I've found 13. Error, wild pitch, passed ball, catcher's interference, balk,hit by pitch, sac fly, sac bunt, walk, hit, stolen base,double play and fielders choice.
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.
A fielders choice is noted with the abbreviation FC and an indication of the path the baseball traveled. For example... With a runner on 1st base a ground ball is hit to the third baseman His throw to second base results in an out but the runner beats the relay throw to first. The scoring would be "FC 6-4"
