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. The batter is indeed "out," but the play is not a "strike out" for either the batter or the pitcher.
No because the batter had nothing to do with the runner scoring.
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.
Yes, the batter would be out for interference if he's touched by the batted ball in fair territory.
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
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.
If the batter is in fair territory, the batter is out. If the batter is not in fair territory, for example the batter is still in the batter's box, the ball is called foul.
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.
The baserunner is out and the batter is credited with a single. The putout goes to the fielder closest to the ball when it hit the runner.
Yes the official scoring notation is K-E2 (strikeout - error on the catcher)
Most official scorers won't record that as a sacrifice but it could be recorded as one.
The hitter gets an RBI ( run batted in) but the runner gets the credit
Yes. The only time it is not an official "At Bat", is if a batter reaches base on a base on balls, hit by pitch or catcher interference. A batter is also not charged with an "At Bat" if he hits a sacrifice fly (a fly ball out that results in a runner tagging up and scoring), or a sacrifice bunt that advances a runner or runners. He is also not charged with an "At Bat" if the batter reaches base as a result of an error on a sacrifice fly or sacrifice bunt.
Yes, the Official Scorer will credit a batter with a RBI in the event of a runner scoring from third in the event of a player getting caught in a run down however Official Scorers also will have the right to not credit the batter with a RBI in the event that they do not believe that the batter would have advanced the runner on third base to home plate.
Anytime the batter is put out at 1st base on a batted ball it is not considered a fielders choice, it is simply a put out. Now in your scenario if the catcher would have thrown home and the runner coming from 3rd is out and the batter is safe at 1st, then in that case it would be a fielders choice
A forward 'k' is using in baseball scoring to mean a batter struck out swinging. a backward 'k' is used to mean a batter struck out looking.
When the batter hits the ball into foul territory, and an opposing player catches it in foul territory on the fly.
the batter is awarded a base hit.
No, it is a dead ball and the batter is out.
