All runners on base score when a home run is hit, assuming they all successfully round the bases without passing each other (a fairly safe assumption unless you're Robin Ventura).

If a batter hits a home run?

If a batter hits a home run, he can automatically run around all the bases and the team gets a point. If there are any runners already on the bases, then they count as points too. This is why you can have two-run home runs and 3-run home runs. If the bases are loaded, and the player at bat hits a home run, then the team gets four points. This is called a grand slam.

There are a number of ways to get from 3rd to home. You can steal, be force home by a bases loaded walk to the batter, the batter get a hit, the batter hit a fly ball to out field allowing you to tag up and the pitcher make an illegal pitch. I'm sure I've overlooked a couple of more.

Only the batter needs to touch first base to complete the walk.

What do you do when you hit a home run in baseball?

When the baseball is batted out of the field of play in fair territory, the batter makes a complete tour of the three bases, and scores a run at home plate. Any players already on the bases must precede him in reaching subsequent bases and each will also score a run for the team upon reaching home plate. The batter is scored one home run, and any other runs as RBI's (runs batted in). The defensive team in the field has no play once the ball leaves the field, and cannot prevent any scores.

Home rune, steal home, Balked in the the pitcher, Walked in with bases loaded, by the batter hitting a single, Sack file, Run down between third and home, passed ball by the pitcher or catcher

I can think of 12 ways (I answered this question for someone else and onyl thought of ten): Base hit Wild pitch Passed ball Sacrifice fly Squeeze bunt Fielder's choice Ground out by batter Balk by pitcher Batter walked with bases loaded Batter hit by pitch with bases loaded Error on fielder Steal of home What about interference by the catcher on a pitched ball with the bases loaded? Would not the batter be awarded first base, thus forcing the run home from third? Answer We came up with 18: 1. Hit 2. Error 3. Passed Ball 4. Wild Pitch 5. Balk 6. Catcher's Interference 7. Sac Fly 8. Bunt 9. Bases Loaded Walk 10. Bases Loaded HBP 11. Wild pick off throw 12. Wild throw from catcher back to pitcher 13. Steal of home 14. Fielder Interference (Cecile, not Prince) 15. Fan Interference 16. Muffed Infield Fly 17. Fielder's Choice 18. Catcher's Balk
