Re: Dropped Third Strike/Kicked Ball

There are a couple of ways of handling this. FYI - depending on the rule set used for play, a batter inadvertently kicking the ball in this situation should not be called out for interference unless the ball was up the first base line and the batter had a good chance to see and avoid it. Intentional...

Re: Error on pickoff attempt with no advancement

Pure judgement call. Was the throw early enough to get the runner but required more than ordinary effort on the pitcher's part? Then no error. Those are the types of questions to ask yourself on this type of play.

Re: California Overtime

There is no way to add an out. However, after two outs, select, 'Misc | End Inning'. This is the normal procedure for handling this situation.

Re: HOW TO SCORE: Batter Interference

'In Play' , 'Fielder's Choice', Select where the ball went, then when it asks what happened with the batter, select 'Out' at the the top. Then 'Hit by Ball'. It will ask who was the closest fielder.

Re: Error or Hit...

I agree with OhioTex. From your description, there is no physical misplay of the ball. This is a hit all the way. A fielder can sit back and wait and wait and wait for a very slow roller to reach them and it is still a hit.

Re: How to score hit by batted ball?

Re: No pitch - intentional walk

To walk a batter without pitches, just tap 'In Play' and then 'Intentional Walk'. The batter will be placed on first base (and forced runners moved appropriately) and no pitches will be added to the pitcher's pitch count. If you want to walk a batter with the pitches counting, you can just tap 'In p...

Re: Softball scoring

This would be scored as a triple. If the runners on first and second score, then the batter would also get 2 RBIs. This sounds straight-forward. Were there any complicating factors?

Re: How do I put a courtesy runner in?

Just tap on the runner and you will get a list of players on the roster. Select one of them and that player will replace the runner.

Re: How would you score?

For a more precise interpretation, MLB Rules 9.12.a.3
(a) The official scorer shall charge an error against any fielder:

(3)
  • when such fielder catches a thrown ball or a ground ball
    in time to put out the batter-runner and fails to tag first
    base or the batter-runner;
