Nine refers to the right fielder. Three to the first baseman Four to the second basemen Theoretically it sounds like the right fielder catches a ball unexpectedly, throws to first for a force out and throws to second for another force out, OR the right fielder actually GETS the out at first base (very rare) on a ground ball who for some reason still has time to try to get somebody at second. 9-4-3 is only the 'trace' of where the ball was thrown, its only a guide, any number of things could happen
