  Error - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Errors in a system can also be latent design errors that may go unnoticed for years, until the right set of circumstances arises that cause them to become active.
A soft error is a deviation from a correct value which does not necessarily imply a malfunction.
In baseball, an error is judged by the official scorer when a runner advances a base because of a fielding mistake, and perfect play would have prevented the advancement, and the mistake was physical.

 Error (baseball) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, an error is the act, in the judgment of the official scorer, of a fielder misplaying a ball in a manner that allows a batter or baserunner to reach one or more additional bases, when such an advance should have been prevented given ordinary effort by the fielder.
An error may not be charged on a foul ball, as the pitcher is in a better situation, with an extra strike against the batter, than he had been before the play.
An error does not count as a hit unless, in the scorer's judgment, the batter would have reached first base safely but one or more of the additional base(s) reached was the result of the fielder's mistake.

Now, the other players where arguing that the error was on the 1st baseman because he should've came up with that ball.
I'd almost go as far to say any throw that isn't caught by the 1st baseman because the throw bounced is a throwing error, and not an error on the 1st baseman.
But, the error does go to the fielder, since it was his throw that put me in the position of having to make a play in the dirt.

 FindLaw's Writ - Dorf: America's Favorite Pastime Exposes a Necessary Evil in the Legal System
Yet once the law recognizes the possibility of holding a trivial error harmless, it is a relatively small step to say that even substantial errors that have a trivial impact on the outcome should be held harmless.
When a court finds an error harmless, it says, in effect, that the losing party's right to his day in court was satisfied by the flawed trial he was given because, after all, even a flawless trial would have produced the same outcome.
As in baseball, so in the law, often a "do-over" is so impractical that we must rely on a dispassionate arbiter's assessment of what would have happened had everything gone right in the first instance.

In case you missed it, and Bud Selig probably hopes you did, the U.S. was eliminated from Olympic baseball during a qualifying tournament.
Since baseball became an official sport in 1992, the Americas have produced all three Olympic champions and five of the nine medal winners.
Of the two dozen players on the Olympic qualifying team, fewer than half were listed by Baseball America among the top prospects in Double A and Triple A. Which means there was a lot of filler in that dugout.

Of course, Alex Rodriguez didn't have the weather to blame for his latest mishap, a sixth-inning throwing error which helped the Blue Jays mount a four-run rally against Mike Mussina and erase a 3-0 Yankees lead.
After the error, Mussina gave up a bloop single by Frank Catalanotto, a ground-ball single by Vernon Wells and a two-run double by Troy Glaus, as the Jays took a 4-3 lead.
Rodriguez's 17 errors already eclipse his total from last season by four, and some of those errors have been costly to the Yankees, who trail the Red Sox by 2 1/2 games in the American League East.

 Fantasy Baseball Fantistics
If the scorer had determined the runner would have been out, there would be no sacrifice, it would have been ruled “reached on an error” and that’s how the batter would have been scored.
The error charged to Crede was an “advancement error” not an “out error”, meaning that you do not count the error as an out in reconstructing the inning for determining earned runs.
So what we have is: None of the runners who scored reached on errors, and all of the runs scored before a reconstructed third out because Crede’s error was not counted as an out as it only resulted in additional advancement.
