Softball/Scoring a batter with a hit or fielders choice
You have a runner on second and the batter hits the ball to the outfield. No catch is made, ball hits ground safely. The runner on second advance to third and is thrown out. Does the batter get awarded a hit or a fielders choice, since the runner is thrown out at third?
Normally whenever you have a runner put out as a result of the at bat, you score a fielder's choice. In your example I would score it a hit as long as there was nobody on first base. This sounds like a single and a put out due to a base running mistake.
