Letting the Ball Fall for an Error


Donna from Snowflake, AZ asks:

The batter hits the ball which falls between the pitcher and second baseman without anyone touching it. Is this an error?

This will be judged an error if, in the scorekeeper's opinion, based on the fielder's positioning, a fielder could have caught the fly ball with ordinary effort.
