Ground ball to the pitcher with a guy on third and the batting is safe at first because the pitcher never had a throw. The runner on third never runs because its not a force out. This is softball, so the bases are shorter. Is this a fielders choice or hit?
IF I understand you correctly, by the time the pitcher fielded the ball, the batter-runner was already close enough to first that the pitcher didn’t feel s/he had a play, and so held the ball to keep the runner at third. Assuming that’s correct: In baseball (see MLB Rule 10.12(a)(1) comment), if there is no misplay, there is no error; if there is no play attempted on the other runner, it’s not a fielder’s choice. So score that as a hit.
