No, if you touch first base with the bat in your hands you are out.

The above answer is wrong. There is no rule covering this. A runner can carry the bat all the way around the bases without violating a rule.

In Major League Baseball, there is no rule prohibiting the batter from carrying the bat to first base, as long as such action does not interfere with defensive play. I've never seen it done, but there is no rule specifically prohibiting it.

Other leagues may have rules addressing this question. You would need to ask a league official from your specific league.

There is no penalty if you carry your bat to first base. It is just one of many Baseball myths.

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.

In major league baseball rules can a batter carry the bat around the bases after hitting a home run?

It's a universal rule for all ages and skill levels including the MLB that you cannot do that. I don't know the reason but you just can't. I guess it might look scary for a defensive player to have a runner coming at you with a weapon
