You can reach base without a hit via the following: 1. Walk (aka Base on Balls) 2. Hit by Pitch 3. Fielding or Throwing Error 4. Passed Ball on Strike Three (The pitch gets away from the catcher after a swing and miss strike 3 and the batter can reach 1st base before the catcher throws to the 1st baseman) 5. Reach on Fielder's Choice (another baserunner is thrown out) That's all I can think of.
A batter can get a hit.A batter can walk.A batter can get hit by a pitch.A batter can run out a drop third strike and make it safely.A batter can reach first base on an error.A batter can reach first base because of a fielder's choice to make a play elsewhere.
The ways to get on base without getting a hit are:(1) Walk(2) Hity by pitch(3) Error(4) Fielder's choice(5) Interference(6) Obstruction(7) Wild pitch (uncaught third strike)(8) Passed ball (uncaught third strike)
Depending on what it means to "get on base" (in the game of baseball) without hitting the ball, I suggest the following ways: 1. As a batter, get a "base on balls." 2. As a batter, be hit by a pitch. 3. As a batter, strike out, the catcher drops the third strike (or misses it completely), the batter runs to first base before the catcher (or other fielder) can retrieve the ball "throw him out" at first base. 4. As a batter, during a swung-on pitch the bat comes in contact with any part of the catcher or his/her equipment. This is most commonly the catcher's mitt. 5. Be substituted as a runner for another player who has already "gotten on base."
Get four balls than strikes....thats it!
I don't know how many ways, but here are the ones that I can think of. The batter hits a home run. (Even though he passes the base, he still reaches it) The batter hits a triple. The batter hits a double. The batter hits a ground-rule double. The batter hits a ball that gets stuck or lost in the outfield wall (or ivy) or other structure. The batter hits a single, but a fielder's error allows the batter to take an extra base. I can't think of any others.
You can score from second base several ways. First, you can score on a single if it is hit far enough. You can also score on an error. You can steal third and make it home on a bunt or a hit. You can reach home from second base with a sacrifice hit, or an extra base hit by the batter.
The Batter can get to base: 1) with a good hit from a swing 2) when the pitcher pitches 4 balls 3) when the batter is hit by a pitched ball
There are 6 ways a batter can reach first base. Base on Balls - a batter is pitched 4 balls Hit By Pitch Hit a single An error in the field Fielders choice (the fielder got another runner out instead of the batter) If the third strike gets past the catcher the batter can run to first if he can beat the catchers throw.
This must be from the guy who asks how may ways a batter can score from third without a hit. 45 is the answer. Example. First batter singles. Second batter hits into a double play. Next three batters all have infield singles to load the bases. Sixth batter's ground ball strikes the base runner going from 1st-2nd. The batter is out, the ball is dead runners may not advance and the batter gets credited with a base hit. So ... five hits in the inning. The team plays eight more that go the same way. 9x5=45.
The ways a batter can reach base: 1. Base hit. 2. Base on balls. 3. Intentional base on balls. 4. Hit by pitch. 5. Error. 6. Fielder's choice. 7. Catcher's interference. I believe that's it.
There are 2 ways a baseball player can get o first base without hitting the ball. 1. They get four balls (where the ball isn't thrown over home base 4 times.) 2. If the pitcher throws the ball and it hits you.
There are several ways to reach first base, but the 5 ways to be awarded first base, without putting the ball into play: 1. Hit-by-pitch 2. Base on Balls 3. Intentional Walk 4. Dropped 3rd strike 5. Catcher interference (hitting catchers glove while swinging)
1. Base on balls 2. Base hit 3. Fielder's choice (the batter hits the ball and the fielder throws to another base, not 1st base, to get an out.) 4. Hit by pitch 5. Error by a fielder 6. Dropped third strike and the batter beats the throw to first 7. Catcher's interference
1. Walk 2. Hit by Pitch 3. Error 4. Fielder's choice 5. Strikeout dropped by catcher 6. Catcher interferes with swing 7. A fielder obstructs the base path of a batter running to first base
three strikes and fielder or outfielder catches ball without dropping it.
This is based on the official Major League Baseball rules, available at http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info/official_rules/foreword.jsp1) A batter is awarded first base for receiving 4 balls.2) A number of infractions by the pitcher can result in a ball being awarded to the batter. If this is ball 4, the batter is awarded first base. Rules 8.01 and 8.02 list illegal actions by the pitcher, including bringing his hand to his mouth and defacing the ball.3) A ball hit into play allows the runner to advance to first base on a hit.4) A ball hit into play allows the runner to advance to first base on an error.5) If the batter or his clothing or equipment is hit by a pitch, and he made an effort to avoid the pitch and did not swing at it, he is awarded first base.6) Interference by the catcher can result in the batter being awarded first base. For example, squatting too close to the batters box and interfering with the batter's swing is catcher interference.7) Interference by a spectator can result in the batter being awarded first base if the umpires believe that the batter would have reached first base without the interference.8) On a dropped third strike, the batter-runner may advance to first base.9) If a pitched ball lodges in the umpire’s or catcher’s mask or paraphernalia, and remains out of play, on the third strike or fourth ball, then the batter is entitled to first base and all runners advance one base. From rule 5.09.10) A particular park may have ground rules that grant a batter a single if the ball is hit in a certain place.11) In some situations a player may reach first base as a substitute for another play who was injured. Rule 5.10.12-23) ...
I'm always surprised at how few people know the correct answer to this question. The question was originally posed as a SCORING question. That is, in how many ways can the reach of first base be SCORED. Let's ignore the "without hitting the ball" part - its usually asked as "without getting a base hit". They are: 1. Base Hit 2. Base on Balls 3. Intentional Base on Balls 4. Hit by Pitch 5. Error 6. Fielder's Choice 7. Passed Ball 8. Wild Pitch Every other scenario you can think of is scored under one of these categories. ** As previously noted, before deletion, there are several scenarios that can play themselves out to where a batter can reach 1st safely, however, the 8 ways listed above are the official scoring for any scenario, any other discussion should be done on the discussion page
Six Seeing that there are 8 ways to reach including a hit, I would say 7! Errors don't count as hits.
A runner, or runners, may advance in several ways; stealing, wild pitch, passed ball, wild throw in pick off attempt, catcher interference with batter, balk, fielder interference with base runner, error by fielder on attempted steal, error on catcher on throw on attempted steal.
There four ways that a player can get out. 1. Strikeout 2. A player catches a ball that the batter hits 3. The base is taged that the player is running to. (This is only an out if there is someone running to the base they left.) 4. They are tagged by someone who is holding the ball.
get walked, get hit, hit the ball, catcher drop third stirke, catcher interferes with swing, and fieldrs choice
In rounders (a similar ball game to baseball) the ways a batter may 'get out'are 1) a direct catch. 2) if base is tagged before reaching it. 3) for not dropping the bat before running to base.
Yes, the ball is live, so there are several ways the batter-runner could be called out after a walk. One would be if he goes from the batter's box into the dugout; another would be if he goes to 1st base, then rounds it and is tagged. I'm sure there are more.
