In HS game tonight, go ahead run is on third, infield playing on the grass. Ball is hit on the ground up the middle. 2nd baseman dives on it, stops it, gets to his knees and throws home. Ball one-hops into the catcher's glove, who turns to tag and in the collision, loses the ball. Run scores.
I say FC for the runner, no errors on the play. Batter could have been thrown out at first, but fielders are trying to stop the run, so had to try for the difficult play. Official scorekeeper says error on 2nd baseman for throw that bounced before reaching the catcher. He says that an error must be charged if there was no out made when one could have been. I think you can give the batter a FC and yet still record no error. Am I wrong?
