I was watching the FSU/Wake Forrest game last night
and FSU had a runner on 1st with 3-1 count on the batter. The runner breaks on the pitch and the catcher throws to 2nd and the 2nd baseman misses the
throw, ball goes to CF & the runner advances to 3rd.
The umpire calls the pitch ball 4 and batter walks.
After the play the announcer says there was an error
on the throw and runner gets credit for a steal.
How does he get credit for a steal when the batter
walked? Just wondering if it is a steal.
