The Ole Ball Game

Error or Fielders Choice

Force At Second

Force At Second

Leah asked: Runner on 1st base.

The ball is hit to left field.

The fielder drops it, but picks it up and throws to 2nd to get the runner trying to advance.

How is this scored?

Rick answered: Leah, thank you for your question.

Scoring would be as follows:

Batter's at bat scored as an e-7, showing how he or she reached first base.

Runner from first base scored as 7-4 out. I am assuming that the second baseman received the throw from the left fielder. If not, it would be the numbered position of the fielder who received the throw.

Yours in baseball,
