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.

According to MLB Rule 2.00: "An OUT is one of the three required retirements of an offensive team during its time at bat." There are many ways an out can be recorded. The three most common are the flyout, groundout, and strikeout: 1) Flyout: A batter hits the ball in the air that is caught by a defensive player before it hits the ground.2) Groundout: A batter hits the ball on the ground that is fielded by a defensive player and thrown to first base before the batter reaches first base.3) Strikeout: A batter accumlates three strikes before accumulating four balls or before hitting the ball and putting it into play. A strike is a pitched ball that the batter either swings at and misses or a pitched ball that the batter does not swing at but passes through the strike zone. A ball is a pitch that the batter does not swing at and does not pass through any part of the strike zone.Click on the 'Definition of Terms' link below to read the definitions of terms used in baseball.
