That batter would be called out. If the ball goes directly from his bat to hitting the batter when they are not in the batters box, the batter is out. If a defensive player deflects the ball before it touches the batter then play continues as normal.
If the batter is outside of the box when contact is made, the batter is out.
If the ball hits the batter in fair territory, the batter is ruled out. If the ball hits the batter in foul territory or the batter's box, the call is a foul ball.
The runner is out, the ball is dead,all runners return to their original base, and the batter receives a base hitAnswerThe batter is awarded a single Added information: This was recently (past few years) changed. Now, the batter is awarded a base hit only if the official scorer judges that the ball would have been a hit had it not touched a runner. Otherwise the batter is on base with a fielder's choice!improvement:The official scoring is single, and the runner is out (unassited putout awarded to the nearest fielder)
No because the batter had nothing to do with the runner scoring.
No. The batter is indeed "out," but the play is not a "strike out" for either the batter or the pitcher.
No, a batter will not receive a RBI in the event of a baserunner scoring a run on a passed ball. The batter will have to hit a batted ball in order to score a baserunner. Hitting after a passed ball will not be counted as a run scoring play regardless of the following outcome of the batter's at-bat.
If the batter is outside the batter's box, and is in fair territory when the ball hits them, then yes they are out. If they are in the box, or in foul territory when the ball hits them, it is just a foul ball.
If a batted ball hits a runner in fair territory, the runner is out, and the batter is credited with a single and takes 1st base
Yes, the batter would be out for interference if he's touched by the batted ball in fair territory.
Most of the batter's box is in foul territory, but some of it is in fair territory, so it depends where the batted ball comes to rest.
HBP by first base...Another answer: HBP (Hit By Pitch) would only apply to a pitched ball, not a batted ball.If a batted ball hits the batter while the ball is in foul territory, it is simply a foul ball. If a batted ball hits the batter while the ball is in fair territory, it would be scored as an out by interference with the catcher being credited with the putout.
If the batted ball is on the ground and touched by a defensive player while the ball is in foul territory, before passing 1B or 3B, then it is foul, and the batter is not out. But if the batted ball is hit in the air, a pop up, and the catcher catches it while in foul territory, the batter is out.
