Yes, probably in the major leagues. This is a judgment call by the official scorer. An error is charged if a major league player would be able to catch the ball with an ordinary effort. The lights in major parks are excellent so unless there is fog or some unusual conditions it is an error if a catchable ball drops even if the player does not see it.
