Best Answer

Just milling though this in my mind, I can think of ten:

Sacrifice fly Fielder's choice Base hit Wild pitch Passed ball Steal of home Squeeze bunt Error on a fielder (throwing or fielding) Ground out Balk by pitcher

Sounds right to me. However, in this situation, a groundout IS a fielder's choice.

A Balk, Single, Double(regular or ground rule), Triple, Home Run, Fielder's Choice, Sacrafice Fly, Sacrafice Bunt, Error (over throw and bobble), Wild Pitch, Passed Ball, Stolen Base (straight steal and/or drop 3rd strike), Walk with the bases loaded, Catchers Obstruction with the bases loaded, Hit by Pitch with the bases loaded... 15 ways I can think of (going by the way you'd score the run scoring).

The various ways that a runner that is on third base can get to home would include a batter getting a hit and driving him home, a Pitcher balking which would allow the runner on third base to automatically advance a base, a fielder throwing a ball away which would be committing an error which would allow the runner on third base to advance to home and runners on first base, second base and third base, the current Pitcher walking the batter which would allow the runner on third base to advance to home and the runner on third base stealing home plate.

Why do the Chicago White Sox have their home dugout on the third base side?

Interestingly, there is no official rule about where the home dugout has to be. And the White Sox are not the only team to have theirs on the third base side-- so do the Tigers and the Indians (and a few others too). Some historians think having it on the third base side goes back to baseball's early years, when many players were also third-base coaches; after standing on the third base line, it was thus much easier to just run back to the dugout and sit for a few minutes. But that explanation may be just another baseball legend.

How many ways to score from second base?

You can score from second base several ways. First, you can score on a single if it is hit far enough. You can also score on an error. You can steal third and make it home on a bunt or a hit. You can reach home from second base with a sacrifice hit, or an extra base hit by the batter.
