The batter or the runner? Either would have to be tagged to result in an out. The catcher (or any player) would have to have the ball and touch the runner from third. If you mean the batter is still in the batter's box and the ball rebounds and hits him then I would surmise that it is a judgment call by the umpire as to whether or not the batter was in the way of the catcher being able to make a play.

Does a batter get an RBI if a runner scores on a passed ball if the batter then singles?

No, a batter will not receive a RBI in the event of a baserunner scoring a run on a passed ball. The batter will have to hit a batted ball in order to score a baserunner. Hitting after a passed ball will not be counted as a run scoring play regardless of the following outcome of the batter's at-bat.

Has a major league batter ever scored a run after being walked without another batter contributing to his progression or stealing any bases?

Given the possiblities of stealing bases, advancing on a passed ball, wild pitch, or error on a pick off attempt, I am sure that it has happened, but I can't cite a specific incidence of it having happened. In fact I am sure there has been a case at least once of a runner stealing second advancing to third when the ball was thrown away of missed o the play at second and then scoring on a wild pitch, passed ball or maybe even a steal. There are so many combinations of things that could allow the scenario you mentioned that I am sure it has to have happened.

Does a dropped third strike scoring a runner from third give the batter an RBI?

The batter would not be given an RBI, it would be scored a run on a passed ball. If it was a passed ball it would be an unearned run, if it was a wild pitch then it would be an earned run. However, neither pitchers or catchers are given errors on wild pitches or passed balls


Is it possible to steal home in baseball?

To steal home in baseball is 100% completely legal. More than likely, you wouldn't steal home unless it's on a squeeze or it's 2 outs, bases loaded, and there is a full count on the batter. One of the most common, and obvious, situations to steal home, is whenever there is a passed ball... make sure the backstop is large enough to ensure you being safe. Know your speed! -Cole.Grossi


Can a batter run to first on a passed ball?

If the passed ball was a result of strike three (with fewer than 2 outs), and first base is unoccupied, the batter can ATTEMPT to run to first base before being thrown out by the catcher. (He is not ENTITLED to first base). He is entitled to first base if the pitch was ball four, whether the ball is a passed ball or not.
