No. An RBI is not awarded on an error. A fielder's choice, a sacrifice, a walk with the bases loaded or a hit. That's about it. A fielding error does not warrant an RBI.

Does batter get RBI If runner he drives in got on by error?


If there is a baserunner on third and the batter hits a ground ball which the fielder makes an error on does the batter get credit for an RBI?

That would likely depend on the circumstances involved before the error occurred meaning if there were no outs or only 1 out then he would get a RBI no matter what but if there's 2 outs then he likely wouldn't get a RBI.

Does the batter get an RBI if he reaches on an error?

Can you earn an RBI on a pass ball?

No, it is not an RBI. a passed ball is basically an error on the catcher and you don't credit RBI's when error's occur. This answer is basicly true in regards to the passed ball, however , a batter can be credited with an RBI on an error, if, in the official scorers judgment the runner or runners would have scored anyway had the error not occured. For example: Runner on third, less than two outs, batter hits ground ball to an infielder who was playing back..infielder commits an error fielding the ball, or throws it wild to the scorers opinion had the infielder fielded the ball cleanly, or not thrown wild to first, the run would have scored anyway. The batter is credited with an RBI.

How do you score a ground out with an rbi?

A batter gets an RBI if his groundout scored a runner. The only exception is if the batter hit into a double play, in which case no RBI is given. Of course if the runner scored on an error, and not on the groundout, there is also no RBI.

Does a batter get an rbi if he reaches on error?

No, RBIs are not awarded to a batter if he ROE (reached on error) and it would be listed as an unearned run for the pitcher. An RBI can be awarded at the discretion of the scorekeeper if the scorekeeper feels the run would have scored regardless of the error. For example a runner is on 3rd base with 1 out and the batter hits a fly to deep center. The outfielder drops the fly ball allowing the batter to be awarded with a sac fly reach on error and an RBI... If there were 2 outs in this situation no RBI would be awarded. Runner on 3rd ball hit to shortstop and the shortstop boots it or throws it away and it is the scorers discretion if the run would have scored anyways on the play, if less than 2 outs. If 2 outs then no RBI

Are there any circumstances by which a batter that reaches base due to an error can get an RBI?

yes, for example with a runner on 3rd with less than 2 out, if he hits a ball deep enough to be a sacrifice fly but the outfielder drops it, the batter will get an RBI because he would have got one without the error

Would a batter get credit for an RBI if there is and error by the fielder and a runner scores?

Can you get a rbi when batter is safe by a fielding error?

if the out would be the third no, it is up to the descrestion of the scorekeeper for example, if there was a runner on third with one out and you bunted the and the third baseman overthrew first, then it would be an rbi, but if the second baseman missed the throw to the first baseman with two outs, then there would be no rbi

If you get a base hit in baseball and there is a person on second and one on third and they scrore how many RBI do you have?

Since RBI stands for Runs Batted In, if both the runner on third and the runner on second cross home plate, then it would be two runs batted in.Answer: two.Answer:You would get 2 RBIs assuming that the runs scored without an error being committed on the play. If there is an error on the play you would get an RBI for that allowed for extra bases (i.e thrown ball, ball gets past outfielder) then the 2nd run may or may not count as an RBI depending on whether the Official Scorer determines the run scored due to the error or the run would have scored regardless of the error
