Best Answer

Yes. A no hitter, by definition, is a pitched game where no opposing player reaches base by means of a base hit. A walk will break up a perfect game. A perfect game is a pitched game where no opposing player reaches base by any means. A walk or hit by pitch or error ends a perfect game but does not end a no hitter.

Is it still a perfect game if you walk a batter in baseball?

No. It can still be a no hitter. But a perfect game requires the pitcher to retire every batter he or she faces. A perfect game is broken whenever any batter reaches base, including by hit, walk, or error.

Was there ever a baseball game that had a no hitter with walks?

Yes. A no hitter is just that, no hits. There have even been cases where a team has scored in a no hitter. One year the White Sox were called "The Hitless Wonders." A player got on first with a walk, on second with a stolen base, and came home on an error. Situations like that happened a number of times during the season.

What are you when you walk three times in baseball?

You are on base three times. You also either have a prettty good batting eye, the pitchers don't have much control, or, you are such a good hitter that the pitcher(s) don't want to pitch to you.

Has a baseball player ever secured a no hitter with a walk-off homer run eg bottom of the ninth tied 0-0 batter hits home run?

No. This is impossible. For his team to win the game in the bottom of the ninth, he would have to have already pitched 9 complete innings. At the point he retired the 27th batter in the top of the 9th, he ALREADY HAD a no-hitter. Whatever happened after that would not affect his no-hitter. If his team had not scored in the bottom of the ninth, and he gave up a hit in the 10th, he STILL pitched a no-hitter. So the home run didn't "secure" anything. The no-hitter was secured the moment he retired the 27th batter in the top of the 9th.

What are the front row attack corridors in volleyball?

Attack CorridorsWith so much movement after the ball is passed you must be the traffic cop and prevent your players from piling up at the "V" and "Deep V". The general pattern is the following: The quick hitter will go first, any play-set hitter will go behind the quick, then the swing hitter will go behind the play-set, and finally the backrow hitter will move behind the swing hitter. When explaining this to your players it is a good idea to play a little ZEN VOLLEYBALL and walk through your plays without a ball, then with an easy toss simulating a serve, and then with a jive server.
