How can a batter reach first base without hitting the ball?

In order to reach base without making contact, a batter could draw a walk, get hit by a pitch, be intentionally walked, or reach first on a passed ball after a strike out (i.e., batter swings and misses, and catcher drops the ball, allowing the batter to reach first base, if first base is free). Without collecting a hit, a batter can also reach first on a fielding error or a fielder's choice, which means that a fielder decided to attempt a defensive play at a base other than first base, allowing the batter to reach first base. You missed a Wild Pitch - wild pitches and passed balls are scored separately.

Is there a way the batter can reach first safely when the infield fly rule is in effect and the batter hits an infield fly?

No, as long as it is a fair ball. Once the umpire signals the infield fly rule the batter is automatically out. However, if the ball is dropped and is ruled a foul ball, the umpire reverses his call and the batter continues his turn at bat. Nevertheless, the batter can not reach first from that batted ball. You will often find an umpire state "Infield fly, Batter is out if Fair". When the rule is in effect, the batter may not get on first base.

Is it possible to have a four-strikeout half inning in baseball?

Yes On the third strike of the third strike out if the ball gets by the catcher the batter can reach first base safely but the at bat is counted as a strike out. The next batter comes up ,strikes out and the cather holds on to the ball this time. Theoretically, if your catcher cannot handle the third strikes, you can have unlimited number of strikeouts in an inning. If every batter reached safely after a dropped third strike (which IS recorded as a strike out for the pitcher), you could lose, say, 20-0 without ever giving up a hit and by striking out every batter.

Can a runner score when a batter gets thrown out at first for the third out?

Maybe. If the out is a force out, then a run can't score; however, if the run scores before the runner is tagged out, then the run counts.Correction for Answer:Answer above in incorrect. In order for the run to officially count the batter needs to reach 1st base safely in this situation. It does not matter how the out of the batter is recorded. Any resulting play in which the batter does not reach 1B safely, the run would not count --- this is why even on walk-off hits you will see the batter go to 1B before they start to celebrate, because if he would not touch 1B, then the run would not count, even if the walkoff hit was a HR ----tigersy2k3

If the third baseman drops a foul ball and is charged with an error and the pitcher retires everyone with no one reaching base is this a perfect game?

No. A perfect game is no runs, no hits, no errors and no walks. I believe that rule stands even if the batter does not reach base on an error. Opinion .... yes, it's still a perfect game. The definition of a perfect game is one in which no runner reaches first base (any way, hit, error, hit by ball, etc.). On a foul ball error, if the batter does not reach first base (strike out, any other way), he is still just another one of the 27 outs in a perfect game. Yes. The definition of a perfect game is 27 batters up and 27 batters down without a single batter reaching base safely. An error that does not result in a batter reaching base safely has no bearing on a perfect game.

Is it correct to say Have you reached safely or Do you reached safely?

Both HAVE and DO are auxiliary verbs, but you can't use DO with "reached." When you use DO as an auxiliary, the verb reverts to its bare form and it is DO that is conjugated. This is called do support and used for emphasis or questions."Have you reached home safely?" (present perfect - have reached)"Does she reach home safely on the bus?" (does reach)"I always do reach home safely." (do reach)
