So this isn't a choice issue?
For instance if we have a runner coming home (because of the hit) on a CI and the BR is out at 1st... Then the MGR can pick to have the out and run or to have BR at 1st and runner back at 3rd.

Maybe you could explain it by asking him this... If a line drive skips off the ground into a players glove is that a caught ball? If a line drive goes into a players glove and then falls out is that a caught ball? Same for the catcher.
