E3 for me; I see the argument for E4 but either way I'm not giving the hitter a hit if the only reason she reached was because the 1B abandoned her base.
Every time.So ... the error was on the scorekeeper?
I love it. Exactly what I tell my daughter too. Adding if it is within 5 feet of your long legs you better field the ballI asked DD about it and she said "You always tell me if it touches my glove I should field it. So it's an error". I had to tell her that's a dad's expectation and not how we actually score games.
I feel your pain.DD got charged with an error in one game by her coaches while playing RF on a hit on the line that she didn't catch - I don't even think it touched her glove - she just couldn't get there fast enough. Never understand that scoring. But their scoring always confuses me. We had a girl last nite that hit a dinky pop up at second basemen who couldn't catch it but fielded it and threw it the 2 ft to 1B where the 1B dropped it and still awarded the batter a hit.
