Best Answer

No. When a batter is hit by a pitch, the ball is dead and no runners may advance.

However, if the bases were loaded, then all runners are forced to advance and the runner from third would score.

I'll be honest that I'm unaware of the rules specific to the league, but generally speaking, a batter-runner advances on a walk only when he is forced to do so by a trailing batter-runner. If a runner chooses to advance when not forced to do so, he is allowed, but is liable for being tagged out as if he were stealing a base.

In slow pitch softball if the batter-runner is hit by his own batted ball while running to first base he is out can the runners on base advance or must they remain at their base?

batter is out, runners do not advance

Can a runner advance when the batter gets a hit but is called out because he stepped out of the batter's box?

If a batter hits the pitch, either fair or foul, with all of one or both feet completely out of the batter's box, he's out. The ball is dead, and no runners can advance.

Can runners advance on wild pitch that goes out of play?

The runner is awarded one base

When a batter is hit by a pitch and the ball goes past the catcher can a runner on second advance to home?

Yes, because the ball remains live, and stealing is allowed in baseball, except often at about the 10-year-olds-and-under levels. The umpire is not supposed to grant a timeout until a walked player has reached first base, and it is obvious no plays are imminent anywhere, but if he does, that would disallow any advancement beyond the award. A common example of when a player may want to attempt extra bases would be if the fourth ball is also a wild pitch or passed ball that gets well passed the catcher.

A batter is touched by a fair ball and is declared out with a runner on first can the runner on first advance to second or must he stay at first?

If a runner is touched by a fair batted ball, in fair territory, before passing a fielder, it's interference, the ball is dead, the runner is Out, and all other runners must return to the base occupied at the time of the pitch, unless forced to advance due to the batter being awarded 1B on the play.

Is it a hit in softball if you hit the runner and reach 1st base safely?

Is ball four a dead ball?

If the pitcher throws four balls to one batter, it means that the batter would get a free base. However, the ball is not dead. For example, if the fourth ball was a wild pitch, other runners could advance, including the runner who had just walked.
