If the official scorekeeper feels the batter would have been safe anyway, the batter is credited with a hit.

The batter is not credited with a hit and it will go against his batting average as if he had been put out.


What is a putout in baseball?

A putout is the term for getting a batter or runner out. An unassisted put out happens when only one fielder is involved, such as when an outfielder catches a fly ball, or the first baseman grabs a ground ball and touches the bag. An example of an assisted put out would be a ground ball that's fielded by an infielder who throws the ball to the first baseman.
