==Cheer the fielder first and don't forget the first baseman == Even a routine grounder must be fielded and thrown to the first baseman before an out is recorded. There is really no need to cheer for the runner. More than a few routine ground balls are not fielded properly. Remember the famous Billy Buckner/Mookie Wilson play which many believe cost the Red Sox a World Series title. Position players mentioned in this question must function together - team work -for an out to occur.
The pitcher normally, unless the second baseman can for some reason out leg him, which he really shouldn't be able to after trying to field the ground ball.
A putout is the term for getting a batter or runner out. An unassisted put out happens when only one fielder is involved, such as when an outfielder catches a fly ball, or the first baseman grabs a ground ball and touches the bag. An example of an assisted put out would be a ground ball that's fielded by an infielder who throws the ball to the first baseman.
no.Unless the first baseman is touching first base.
It depends on how experienced you are. If you have a long experience and have the right form, you should be hitting fast, hard line drives into the outfield giving you at least a single and at most a triple. If you aren't experienced you are probably stuck hitting slow ground balls directly to the 3rd baseman, 2nd baseman, or 1st baseman. Or you just strike out!
One and cover is a practice activity where an infielder fields a ground ball, throws to first base which is considered base one in the base numbering system. The first baseman then throws to home plate where the catcher throws to the corresponding base of the fielder who just fielded the ball, who is covering his designated base.
It means the first baseman, position 3, made an unassisted out. Example would be a ground ball to first baseman and they tagged the base for the out.
A putout in baseball is the person who has the ball when the out is made. example: on a strike out the putout goes to the catcher on a ground out to the 1st baseman the 1st baseman gets the putout on a flyout the one who catches the ball gets the putout
Second, short, third. Repeat.
No, it would be listed as an unearned run. A double-play is never assumed but a force play (at home or first) would be especially if the official scorer gave him an error (which basically means that the out should have been made).
if the runner is stealing no but if there was a ground ball and he is running then yes
Not completely sure of the question, but I'll go under the assumption the question being asked is: What is the official scoring when a ground ball is fielder by the 3rd baseman, and he then throws it to the 1st baseman for an out? The answer is: 5-3
