MLB Rule 7.08(b) states: Any runner is out when -- He intentionally interferes with a thrown ball; or hinders a fielder attempting to make a play on a batted ball;Rule 7.08(b) Comment: A runner who is adjudged to have hindered a fielder who is attempting to make a play on a batted ball is out whether it was intentional or not.If an umpire decides that the base runner has "hindered" a fielder by running in front of him, then that runner is out. But this is a judgement call.
No. A runner is out if hit by a batted ball but not out if hit by a thrown ball.
on a batted ball the fielder has the right of way if the fielder is in the basepath and the ball isn't near him the runner has the right of way
No, it's the other way around. The fielder has the right of way on a batted ball, and the runner must yield to the fielder.
No. If a fielder has a legitimate opportunity to make an attempt at the ball, but the ball passes the fielder and then touches the runner, he is not out. The rules state a runner is out when a batted ball touches him before it passes a fielder.
If a runner in fair territory is struck by a batted ball prior to the ball having been fielded, the runner is out.
If the fielder is attempting to make a play on a batted ball, and the base runner runs into the fielder, then the runner is out. If there is no play to be made on the ball, and the fielder is standing in the base line and is run into by the base runner, then it is interference on the fielder, and the runner is awarded the next base.
No...as soon as the batted ball touches the runner, the ball is dead.
no, but the base runner is out if he is struck by a BATTED ball (but he isn't out if he touches a ball thrown by a fielder)
No. If a batted ball is touched by a defensive player before it touches a runner, the ball is live and the runner is not out. Also, if a batted ball passes a fielder that could make a play on the ball and touches a runner, the ball is live and the runner is not out. This situation is very rare and would only occur when the infield is playing in and are in front of the runner(s).
The runner would be safe if the ball passes by a fielder other than the pitcher, out if hit before the ball has past a fielder.
The batter is out unless a fielder touched the ball
