What is conceding the run in baseball?

Concedint the run in baseball is a term describing a situation in which the defensive team allows a runner to score because the fielders are preoccupied with getting another runner or runners out. This is often an intentional judgment call by the fielders. For example, if a batter hits a ground ball and a runner at third takes off for home plate, the fielders will concede the run to the runner about to reach home plate in favor of getting the easier, more certain out at first base.
