Does a fielders choice score as 0-1 feiedes?

Joe asked: Does a fielders choice score as a 0-1 fields?



Rick answered: Joe, thank you for your question.

In the scorebook, the fielder's choice would be scored FC for the batter. When they total the book after the game, they know it counts as a time at bat,; but not a hit, and there is no put out on the batter as he reaches first base.

If there is a putout recorded on a base runner, that putout gets recorded in the base runner's box, based on what the situation was. Say a 6-5, depending on the players involved.

Yours in baseball,

Rick

Fielder's choice
by: Rick, theoleballgame

As you read through the first paragraph, the second sentence reads...When they total the book after the game, they know it counts as a time at bat; but not a hit, as there is no put out on the batter as he reaches first base.

A fielder's choice is an 0'fer, it counts against a players batting average.

Didn't answer question

This still doesn't answer if you credit the batter 0-1 or 0-0
