  I need to better understand the fielders choice rule.

Here is the situation;
With a runner on first, the batter hits a line drive or fly ball to the outfeild that is not caught. The outfielder then throws the ball to second getting the force out at second base.

Is this scored a filders choice or base hit for the batter?

  This is a fielder's choice, same as if the ball had been hit to the shortstop who got the lead runner at 2B.

10.06:  A base hit shall not be scored in the following cases: (a) When a runner is forced out by a batted ball, or would have been forced out except for a fielding error;

The fact that the ball went to the outfield makes no difference.  A runner that was on base was forced out by the actions of the batter.  Fielder's Choice.

  AtlantaBlue,

Thanks for the help. I thought this was the case but recently read the fielders choice definition as; a ball hit to an infielder.

Thanks Again.
