No, under the rules of general baseball the batter is never required to move from the batter's box on a steal attempt, even if the attempt is at home. Some leagues may require the batter to move for safety though
to pitch the ball over the plate OS the batter can attempt to hit it.
Yes. If the batter is walked and the 4th ball is a wild pitch or passed ball, the batter may attempt to take an extra base.There is no rule in baseball that requires a batter that is walked to stop at 1st base.
A bunt attempt.
If the batter attempts to hit the ball and misses, it is a strike. If the batter does not attempt to hit the ball and the ball enters the strike zone, it is a strike. If the batter does not attempt to hit the ball and the ball does not enter the strike zone, it is a ball (unless it hits the batter, then the batter is awarded 1st base).
The batter can make an attempt to reach first, but if the ball is fouled off by the batter, the batter is out (strike out).
No, the ball is not dead and the batter may attempt to hit it.

If the Home Plate Umpire rules that the batter did not attempt to avoid being hit, batter does not get the pass to first base.
Yes, as long as the batter makes an attempt to get out of the way of the pitch they are awarded first base on a pitched ball that touches the ground and then the batter.
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.
The pitcher is the one who throws the baseball to the batter.
The batter swinging the bat.

Bret Batter is a contestant on Reality TV Island. He is a baseball player. He likes to say stuff about baseball.
There is a play in baseball known as the 'suicide squeeze'. It is a high risk play done in an attempt to score a run and is usually seen only when the score is tied or there is a one or two run difference. The situation where a suicide squeeze may be attempted is when there is a runner on third base and less than two outs. When the pitcher throws to the batter, the runner on third starts for home and the batter turns and makes an attempt to bunt the ball. If the batter misses the bunt attempt, the catcher will be in possession of the ball and the runner coming home from third will be tagged out. If the batter makes a successful bunt but the ball goes in the air and is caught by a fielder, it will be a double play as the runner will be doubled off of third base. However, if the batter makes a successful bunt on the ground the runner coming home from third will score.
A player that can't hit.
If it is an attempted steal of home, or if it is a suicide squeeze play, the batter has the right to be in the batter's box in order to attempt to hit the pitched ball. However, he may not remain there after the attempt if a play is subsequently being made at the plate (for example, on a passed ball, or if the runner on 3rd base is in a rundown).
There are many characteristics in baseball. The main characteristics are pitching the ball to the batter and then the batter running after hitting the ball.
The batter watches a strike go by and doesn't swing the bat. A batter swings at a strike and misses. A batter swings at a ball and misses. A batter could also attempt to bunt on the third strike, bunting it foul would lead to the batter being called out.
Yes. The ball is not declared dead on a walk. The batter could even attempt to steal second right away if he chose to.
