I cannot imagine such a situation.

Only a player may score a goal. A substitute, or starter, only becomes a player once they step onto the field.

So it appears to be a logical impossibility that a person who has not stepped onto the field can score a goal.

A team is given a throw in when the ball exits the pitch on the wings after touching a member of the opposing team last. The throw must be over the head, with two hands on the ball, and two feet touching the floor as the ball is released. A goal cannot be scored directly from a throw in.

A goal can be scored from anywhere on the pitch, even an opposing team's goal kick can count as a goal if it goes in. There are a few scenarios where a goal cannot be allowed - if a ball goes in from a throw-in without touching a player it cannot stand as a goal. If a goal is scored from an indirect free kick without being taken as such, it does not count. To be counted as a goal, the entire ball needs to cross the goal line, in between the two posts and underneath the crossbar.

No, BB is for a base on balls or walk. Hit by pitch would be HBP.

walk, error, fielders choice, player interfeerence, dropped 3rd strike, pinch runner and hit by pitch 1. Base on Balls 2. Intentional Base on Balls (scored separately to 1) 3. Hit by Pitch 4. Error 5. Fielder's Choice 6. Passed Ball 7. Wild Pitch Pinch Runner is NOT a way of scoring a REACH of 1st base. Runner Interference (if the batter himself is not out) is scored as a base hit. Catcher Interference is scored as an error. Fielder Obstruction is scored as an error. Any scenario you can think of will be scored as one of the above 7, or a base hit. (I am only referring to how the reach of first base is scored)

For the pitcher's ball/strike pitch numbers, it is counted as a strike.

User Avatar

It means that the batsman has scored his first run since coming on the pitch.

User Avatar

Yes because the pitcher threw a ball that the catcher couldn't catch.

No. Pitch and Roll are a requirement for many reasons.

If the batter is struck by the pitch in the strike zone, the ball remains live so if it was the third strike it would be an out. The runner could score from third base.

User Avatar

No. A run is only unearned if an error or passed ball (but NOT wild pitch) results in a run scoring that would not have scored (in the official scorer's judgment) had the play been made cleanly.

It depends on the player. A cellist who only knows first position can only go up to a D4. The highest pitch that can be played with the left hand touching the fingerboard is an A6, but the cello can go higher.

You can transpose it. Not sure, but there may be devices that can do this. You can change the pitch by using audacity. selecting the audio and then "change pitch."

If the play is scored as a passed ball it is an error. It should only be scored a passed ball/wild pitch if a runner advances, or on the third strike the batter reaches first base safely. The scoring is sometimes a judgment call. Some statisticians are more strict on calling it a passed ball or wild pitch.

User Avatar

The play is dead, the runner that was hit is out, and the batter reaches first base and is credited with a single.

User Avatar

If it hit the batter the batter gets first and it's scored as a hit by pitch.

Yes. The last time it happened in MLB was in the 2009 season in a game between the Washington Nationals and Colorado Rockies. Alan Embree of the Rockies was brought in with 2 outs in the top of the 8th inning and the score tied at 4. He picked Austin Kearns of the Nats off first for the third out before throwing a pitch to the batter. He was pinch hit for in the bottom of the 8th and the Rockies scored a run to take a 5-4 lead. Huston Street came in to pitch the top of the 9th and got the save. B. J. Ryan of the Baltimore Orioles won a game without throwing a pitch against the Detroit Tigers on May 1, 2003. He was brought in with 2 out in the bottom of the 7th with the score tied at 2. He picked the runner off first base for the third out before throwing a pitch to the batter. The Orioles scored in the top of the eighth, Ryan was replaced, and the Orioles wound up winning 5-2.
