Best Answer

It's not a catch, and there's a 3-base award.

According to Rule 7.05(b):

Each runner including the batter-runner may, without liability to be put out, advance three bases, if a fielder deliberately touches a fair ball with his cap, mask or any part of his uniform detached from its proper place on his person. The ball is in play and the batter may advance to home base at his peril

If the outfielder dives for the ball and catches it but it rolls out is that an error or not?

No. According to Major League Baseball's Official Rule 10.12(a)(1), the game's official scorer should only charge an error to the fielder if he could have otherwise "handled the ball with ordinary effort." A missed diving play, such as a play in which an outfielder catches a fly ball while diving but then loses it upon hitting the ground, would not fall under the criteria of an error because it is not a play that could have been made under ordinary effort.
