it is a hit by pitch (or a walk).
The answer above makes it seem a HBP and a Walk are the same -- they are not.. they are scored different and effect stats different. If the umpire calls it ball 4 and says it never hit the batter the ball is still in play and the batter gets a Walk -- If the umpire determines the ball hit the batter, the batter gets a HBP (hit-By Pitch) and it is a dead ball --- runners advance their one base but cannot advance further
In your question -- even though the ball hit the dirt, once it strikes the batter (assuming the batter never swung), this is a Hit-By-Pitch
4 pitched balls that are not strikes. runner advances to first base. does not count as an at bat or a hit.
if the player strikes out and the catcher drops the ball, the player tries to beat the catcher's throw to first base. If he reaches first before being tagged or thrown out at first, he is awarded first base.
Please describe how you drop something 'horizontally'

Yes, as long as the batter makes an attempt to get out of the way of the pitch they are awarded first base on a pitched ball that touches the ground and then the batter.
It is considered a legally batted ball subject to being a fair or foul ball. Also, if a pitched ball bounces in the dirt and strikes the batter, the ball is dead and the batter receives first base as he was legally hit by a pitched ball.
balls the first number is balls and the second number is Strikes
If the ball hits the ground in play then it hits the batter it is call a hit by pitch and the batter will take first base ... You can also hit the ball as it bounces off the ground ...
No he is not out. Hitting the rubber is like hitting the ground. He would have to throw out the batter, runner at first base.
With one out or no outs the batter is out. With two outs the batter may run to first.
Yes the first two foul balls are strikes unless there aree two strikes. A batter can not strike out on foul balls.
A bullet fired parallel to the gound, over flat ground, and a bullet dropped at the same time from same height will hit the ground at a time so close to each other as to be the same.

No. Since lightning often strikes tall objects first the lightning rod on the first floor would not allow the current to be safely sent to the ground.
Joe Nuxhall was the youngest player in modern Major League history. He was 15 years old when he first pitched for the Reds.
It is considered that a shin can not hit the ground without the knee hitting first. So yes the player is down.
