If the pitched ball four (issuing a walk) gets past the catcher, it is still a "live" ball, and the batter, and any other runners on base, may advance as far as they can.

If the batter does not swing at the ball and it hits him in the hand, it is not a strike and the player is able to walk to first base. If a batter is hit with a ball and the batter did nothing to place himself in front of the ball to make himself be hit, he is able to walk to first base.

If a pitched ball hits the ground first then strikes a player is the call a ball or a walk?

it is a hit by pitch (or a walk).Clarification: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 furtherIn 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

What is baseball?

Baseball is a game where a pitcher throws the ball over the home plate and between the batter's knees to their lower chest. If the ball is not of those rules, the pitch is counted as a ball. If the batter swings at a ball, it is counted as a strike. 4 balls and it is a walk to 1st base and 3 strikes is a strikeout and the player is out as a batter. 3 outs and it is a changeover. When the batter hits it and it goes out of the field, it is counted as a Home run where the batter runs back to home base at any speed. If the ball bounces and then goes over, it is called a ground out and the batter is out. The ball is made of compressed cork and is really hard. If the pitcher throws the ball and it hits the batter, it is a balk which is just advancing to 1st base. If someone is on 1st base and it is a walk, the 1st base moves to 2nd base and so on. The catcher at the back catches the strikes and balls. it is their responsibility to keep the umpire safe and the ball from going into the backstop. The bat is usually made of maple wood.
