Yes it is, because he was only awarded a trip to 1st base not 2nd.
The batter does not get first base. They only get first when it hits them directly. WRONG! Rule 2.0 states that a ball which hits the ground first then hits the batter is ruled a hit batsman, and he is awarded 1st base.
If a fair batted ball touches a runner in fair territory, it's interference, the runner is Out, the batter is awarded a hit and given 1B, and all runners must return to the bases they occupied at the time of the pitch, unless forced to advance by the batter being awarded 1B.
Yes, it is a dead ball and the batter gets a free base (He/she gets to go to 1st)
nothing, on a base on balls the runner is awarded 1st base so he will not get out unless he goes to 2nd or makes an attempt to 2nd and is tagged out.
yes he can do it
Yes, if the batter was retired with that 1 pitch or got on base or was hit by the pitch. In other words if that batter is no longer up or if this was not the 1st batter the pitcher has faced and the pitcher threw a strike or a ball then the manager could take him out or if the pitcher suffered an injury with that one pitch. If the pitcher comes into a game and throws only one pitch and the batter is still up and there is no injury to the pitcher, then the pitcher must pitch to the batter till he is retired or reaches base on a hit, walk, error, fielders choice, etc.
This is based on the official Major League Baseball rules, available at http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info/official_rules/foreword.jsp1) A batter is awarded first base for receiving 4 balls.2) A number of infractions by the pitcher can result in a ball being awarded to the batter. If this is ball 4, the batter is awarded first base. Rules 8.01 and 8.02 list illegal actions by the pitcher, including bringing his hand to his mouth and defacing the ball.3) A ball hit into play allows the runner to advance to first base on a hit.4) A ball hit into play allows the runner to advance to first base on an error.5) If the batter or his clothing or equipment is hit by a pitch, and he made an effort to avoid the pitch and did not swing at it, he is awarded first base.6) Interference by the catcher can result in the batter being awarded first base. For example, squatting too close to the batters box and interfering with the batter's swing is catcher interference.7) Interference by a spectator can result in the batter being awarded first base if the umpires believe that the batter would have reached first base without the interference.8) On a dropped third strike, the batter-runner may advance to first base.9) If a pitched ball lodges in the umpire’s or catcher’s mask or paraphernalia, and remains out of play, on the third strike or fourth ball, then the batter is entitled to first base and all runners advance one base. From rule 5.09.10) A particular park may have ground rules that grant a batter a single if the ball is hit in a certain place.11) In some situations a player may reach first base as a substitute for another play who was injured. Rule 5.10.12-23) ...
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.
Yes. Ball is dead. Batter is awarded 1st and all runners advance 1 base. Rule 5.09 (f)
The base runner is out that got hit with the ball as long as he is in fair territory. At this point the ball is considered dead and the runners would go to the base they should be at. Example: Runners at 1st and 2nd. Guy on 2nd running toward 3rd after ball is hit, he is hit. He is out. Runner at 1st is awarded 2nd, batter is awarded 1st and the ball is dead.
Yes, she would get an RBI, but the run would be unearned to the pitcher, since the batter who scored didn't "earn" her way on base. Generally the batter is not awarded an RBI if a runner scores when the BATTER reaches on an error, if if he hits into a double play.
