Yes, a Pitcher pitching a Baseball in a Major League Baseball game and if the pitched ball ends up hitting any part of the batter who is at the plate regardless of whether it's his uniform, his shoes, his battling gloves or even his helmet it would be ruled as the ball hitting him and therefore it would be credited as a Hit by Pitch and the umpire would award you first base automatically.

Yes if a pitched ball hits the batter's uniform he should be awarded first base as he is hit-by-pitch. Umpires may miss this however, as sometimes it is hard to tell if a ball hits the jersey
