Best Answer

a walk is when you get 4 balls (when the ball is thrown to high or to low and the batter doesn't swing at it, it is a ball) and get to go to at least 1st base, you can steal the other bases.(just because it's called a 'walk' doesn't mean you get to walk, still run)

A walk is when 4 balls are thrown that are not in the strike zone of the umpire. the balls may be thrown in any order, such as a strike, 2 balls, a strike and a 2 balls. The batter is then walked. You can also be hit by a pitch, which would earn you a base as a walk.
