It would be scored as an out and the credit would go to the catcher, since he is the closest player to play.


It depends upon whether the ball was contacted in fair or foul territory when contacted by the runner.

In fair territory the runner is out, play is dead (runners can't advance), and the catcher is credited with the putout.

In foul territory, it depends on the count. With two strikes the batter is out, and the pitcher is credited with a strikeout. With less than two strikes, it is treated as a strike.

When a ball is hit out of the ground how much do you score?

When a ball is hit out of the ground, six runs are scored by the batsman. A six is scored whenever the ball crosses the boundary on the full, so it doesn't necessarily have to reach the stands to be a six. There is no higher run-scoring shot than a six, so even if the ball is hit out of the ground and into the carpark, six runs is the maximum that can be scored.

When a batter bunts the ball and runs to first base and the fielder throws the ball to home plate trying to get the run there is it a hit or a sacrifice as no one was put out?

That play would be called a 'fielder's choice'. A fielder's choice is a play where the defensive player that fields the ball attempts to put out a runner at another base instead of attempting to put out the batter at first base. No hit can be awarded on a fielder's choice but a sacrifice can be awarded if the batter had turned in the batter's box before the pitch in an obvious sign that they were going to bunt. An RBI can also be awarded if there was no error on the play.

Byes- Runs scored if the batsman scores runs when the ball does not touch the bat or any part of the batsman's body. Note if this occurs off a wide then the runs are scored as wides. Does not count against the bowler (unless wide) Leg-byes- Runs scored if the ball hits the batsman without touching the bat. Does not count against the bowler.
