The batter is declared out and awarded a single since first base was the last base he reached safely before being called out. All three runners score and the batter is awarded 3 RBIs.
What the name of the hit that gets the batter to first base safely
It is a live ball. If the batter reaches first base safely, it is a hit. If the batter is thrown out a first, it's an out.
if on one of the strike outs the catcher drops the ball and the batter reaches first base safely the out does not count
The fielder who caught the ball had the option to either get the batter running to first or another runner. Example: With a runner of first the batter hits the ball to the short stop. The short stop choices to throw the ball to second to get the runner out but the batter reaches first base safely.
Absolutely but only if the batter safely reaches first base. A dropped (actually uncaught) third strike is a live ball.
The at bat is recorded like an out so they would be 0 for 1, FC, even though they reached base safely.
No, it is simply ball four and the runner is safe and the batter is awarded first base on a base on balls.
If the batter is tagged out before he reaches first base it is still considered a force out and the runner cannot score, however if the batter crosses first base safely and then is tagged out, the run counts if the third base runner crosses home plate before the batter is tagged out.
That Jon will score when the next batter hits a double.
no.Unless the first baseman is touching first base.
