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.
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.
It is an unassisted putout given credit to the nearest fielder and the hitter is given a single when a batted ball in play hits a runner -- in this instance since the batter is the runner hit he would not get a single and since it is just out of the batters box it would just be recorded as G-2 -- or Ground-out to Catcher, whichever is your shortcut of choice for marking that
If the official scorer ruled the batted ball a base hit, it would be scored as a single. If the official scorer ruled the batted ball an error, it would be ruled a one base error.
A Baseball player hitting foul after foul is done more so to stay alive (not strike out) then to work the pitcher ... You have to keep in mind that the batter him self is using up energy to hit the ball foul ... The batter would rather get a hit then repetitively hitting the ball foul ...
No he is not out. Hitting the rubber is like hitting the ground. He would have to throw out the batter, runner at first base.
no, it would be batter's interference
Yes, the batter would be out for interference if he's touched by the batted ball in fair territory.
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)
It would be ruled a double...I assume.
yes because the batter would have been interfering the play.
If a batted ball is caught in the air, the batter is out and would not be on base. It would not be a "hit."
The batter's average would be 280, and after hitting 3 of 4 would increase his average to 284.
