How does a fielders choice get scored? Does a FC count as a hit or is it not counted as a at bat for figuring batting avg.

A Fielder's Choice is NOT a hit, but it does count as an at-bat in figuring batting average.
Whenever a batter hits into a FC, there is a play on another runner instead of the batter/runner. The presumption appears to be that if the other runner didn't have a play attempted on him, the batter would have been thrown out at 1B (which would be a putout, scored as an at-bat just like a FC).
