The batter is out any time the umpire judges that she has abandoned her attempt to run the bases. In this case, the umpire will probably judge that turning toward the dugout (especially if she advances toward the dugout) is an abandonment of her attempt to run the bases and call her out.

After hitting a fly ball the batter assuming it will be caught for an out jogs toward and almost to the dugout the outfielder drops the ball and the batter runs to first Is he safe?

if the ball doesnt get to the first baseman before the batter does than yes, the batter would be safe and then benched(hence jimmy rollins)

If the ball hits the dirt on the third strike for the third out and the batter turns and walks back toward the dugout can he then turn and run to first safely?

Yes. As long as he doesn't leave the dirt around home plate. Rule 6.09(b) Comment: A batter who does not realize his situation on a third strike not caught, and who is not in the process of running to first base, shall be declared out once he leaves the dirt circle surrounding home plate."[1] 1. ^

Does reaching base on a dropped third strike count toward a player's on-base percentage?

No. Reaching base due to the uncaught third strike rule, an error, or fielder's choice does not increase on base percentage but decreases it.

What is a pitch in baseball?

A "pitch" is the throw of a baseball from the pitcher to the catcher, usually with the intent of avoiding having the ball hit by the batter (who is of the opposing team). The batter stands to either side of home plate, bearing a bat (an elongated stick of wood or aluminum). The batter will try to hit the ball into the field of play when it is thrown toward him by the pitcher. If he does not try to hit it, or misses, the ball will be caught by the catcher. Depending on whether the ball passes through a specified area ("the strike zone"), the batter will be ruled with either a "strike" (he could have hit it) or a "ball" (it was outside the zone and unlikely to be hit). (see related link)

As a dropped penny falls toward the ground energy is converted to energy?

Since the penny was up and stationary before (in your hand or wherever), it had potential energy at first. When it's dropped, it is converted into kinetic energy (energy of motion).

What are the physics behind a curve ball?

When a pitcher throws a curve ball he grips the ball with his fingers to impart spin on the ball when he thows it toward the batter. This gives the ball two motions i.e. forword velocity and spin. If the spin axis is in the vertical plane (i.e. updown )the pitch will rise if it is spining clockwise (i.e. toward batter) and fall if counterclockwise(i.e. away from the batter). If the spin is in the horizontal plane clockwise spin will(i.e. toward the batter)the ball will cause the ball to move toward the 3rd base side of the batter. If the spin is clockwise (i.e away from the batter) the ball will move toward the 1st base side of the batter. The reason for the ball movement is the air is moving over one side of the ball faster then the other causing lift or a aerodynamic force in the direction of movement. This force is caused by the spin on the ball. Think about the air on one side as moving at the speed of ball forward velocity plus the spin velocity and the other side as moving at ball forword velocity less the spin velocity. Various grips, arm positions, release points will then make the ball look like it is a dancing curve.

Little league ball is hit and bounces back toward batter it hits batters helmet and goes out of bounds Is the batter out?

If the baseball hit the ground in foul territory, the ball is a foul ball. If the baseball hit the ground in fair territory, and the batter/runner is still in the batter's box when the baseball hits him, it is a foul ball. If the baseball hit the ground in fair territory and the batter/runner is out of the batter's box when the baseball hits him, the batter/runner is out and the ball is dead.

Why ball dropped in new zealand will not travel in same direction as ball dropped in Scotland?

-- The forces of gravity between two objects act along the line between their centers. -- For objects on Earth, one of the objects involved in mutual gravitational forces is always the Earth, just because it's the biggest mass around. -- So any object dropped on or near the Earth experiences a gravitational force that attracts it toward the center of the Earth. -- The direction from New Zealand toward the center of the Earth is not the same as the direction from Scotland toward the center of the Earth. In fact, they're nearly opposite.

Does reaching base on an error count toward a player's on base percentage?

No, because if the error hadn't occurred, the batter would have been out.

Can the runner retreat toward home to avoid being tagged before reaching first base?

A batter exiting the batter's box and running to first need not be tagged at all as a player on the opposing team needs only to tag the base while in possesion of the ball.

Can you step in front of the ball and take a walk?

No--at least in theory. If a batter doesn't make an effort to avoid the ball, it's called a strike even if it hits him. However, in Major League Baseball today players often seem to be able to fool umpires by turning sideways and leaning slightly toward the ball. A player who blatantly stepped onto the plate to ensure he gets hit, though, would certainly not be awarded a free base.

What are the dimensions of a professional baseball field?

The outfield itself does not have official dimensions, however, the infield does. The pitcher's rubber is 60ft 6in away from home plate (directly in line with home and second base) and the bases are 90ft apart in a square. It is called a diamond, although it's not a true rhombus. It is just a square at a 45 degree tilt. The batter's box is 4ft by 6ft. The distance between the batter's box and home plate is 6in. Home plate is 17in across. The pitcher's mound is a 9ft radius. Between corners (first to third, home to second) is 127ft, 3 3/8in. The base coach box is 12ft away from first or third base and starts in line with the base and extends 20ft toward home plate, 10ft toward the dugout. The border between infield and outfield is a 95ft radius with the pitcher's rubber being the center. The batter's circle (not the on-deck circle, but the area around home plate) is a 13ft radius with home plate being the center.

Where do you find a strike slip fault?

We can find strike slip fault between two tectonic plates. For exemple; San Andreas fault in California is a strike slip fault and represent the limit between America plate and Pacifique plate. These two plates move with an inverse movement(~1 towards the north and ~1 toward the south). But we can also find this kind of fault in other context like in a colision.

What is the example where acceleration is in the direction of motion?

An example of acceleration in the direction of motion is a smooth spherical stone dropped from the roof of a building on a windless day. All the motion is straight down, toward the center of the earth, and so is the acceleration.

What happens when a fly ball hit to the first baseman is dropped with a runner on first base?

Nothing in your situation. Only maybe if there is less than two outs and at least another runner on second. If there is less than two outs, the infield fly rule applies. The runner should stay on first base. The batsman would be out anyway. That is the purpose of the infield fly rule. It was put in when Ty Cobb had a similar situation. He was playing short stop. There were runners on first and second. A batter hit a pop up toward him. He yelled, "I got it." The runners stayed on first and second. He dropped the ball. Tagged the runner on second. Stepped on the base, and threw the ball to first for a triple play. Then baseball put in the infield fly rule. If there is a popup in the infield with zero or 1 outs, and runners on base that would be forced out, the batter is out and the runner should not advance.

What produces body heat for the sperm?

The body itself but too much can slow them down or kill them. That is why the testicles are held in the scrotum. They can be lifted toward the main part of the body to keep warm and be dropped down if the body is too warm.

Why do objects accelerate when dropped?

Earth's gravity pulls all objects toward its center of mass, or in most cases toward the surface. Gravity is a property of matter,and causes every mass to exert a force on every other mass. In this case, the Earth's gravity applies a force to every object on it, and that force will accelerate an object toward the Earth's center, unless it is prevented by some intervening mass. It will still have the potential to accelerate again if the intervening mass is removed.
