Is it a hit or fielders choice?
Mitch asked: Runner on first batter hits a ground ball to the short stop trying to turn a double play.
Runner is out at second base but throw to first not in time. I understand you can't assume a double play.
Is the batter scored as a hit or fielders choice.
Rick answered: Mitch, thank you for your question.
As you described it, scored a fielder's choice.
Infielder made a conscious choice to start the double play, thus a fielder's choice.
Yours in baseball,
