Just milling though this in my mind, I can think of ten:

Sacrifice fly Fielder's choice Base hit Wild pitch Passed ball Steal of home Squeeze bunt Error on a fielder (throwing or fielding) Ground out Balk by pitcher

Sounds right to me. However, in this situation, a groundout IS a fielder's choice.

A Balk, Single, Double(regular or ground rule), Triple, Home Run, Fielder's Choice, Sacrafice Fly, Sacrafice Bunt, Error (over throw and bobble), Wild Pitch, Passed Ball, Stolen Base (straight steal and/or drop 3rd strike), Walk with the bases loaded, Catchers Obstruction with the bases loaded, Hit by Pitch with the bases loaded... 15 ways I can think of (going by the way you'd score the run scoring).

The various ways that a runner that is on third base can get to home would include a batter getting a hit and driving him home, a Pitcher balking which would allow the runner on third base to automatically advance a base, a fielder throwing a ball away which would be committing an error which would allow the runner on third base to advance to home and runners on first base, second base and third base, the current Pitcher walking the batter which would allow the runner on third base to advance to home and the runner on third base stealing home plate.

The distances between the plates are 90 feet. The distance between home plate and first base is 90 feet. First base to second base is 90 feet. Second base to third base is 90 feet. Third base to home plate is also 90 feet. Additionally, the distance between first and third base straight across is 127 feet.

The bases are 90 feet apart. From home plate to first base is 90 feet. From home plate to second base is 180 feet. From home plate to third base is 270 feet. From home plate around the bases and back to home plate is 360 feet. (That's farther than from goal line to goal line in football.) From first base to third base is 180 feet.
