I have the Rockies/Rays game on as I have Aaron Cook in my fantasy league and find it comforting background noise as I sit and reconsider the path my life is taking. David Price at the plate, Michel Hernandez on first base. Price hits a ground ball to the shortstop, no out is made, and Price is given an 0-1 for a fielder's choice.
No harm, no foul, we move on.
Except this is major league baseball. Inevitably, something bad or senseless or strange is going to happen. A few pitches (maybe batters, even, I lost track of the time difference), the Rockies official scorer changed the fielder's choice to a hit.
99% of the time, this is a non-issue. However, that newly made hit would be David Price's first major league hit. Normally, the player would receive the ball. Not today, Mr. Price, not today.
One less piece of memorabilia to put up on Ebay.
