Will a fast pitch be hit further than a slow pitch?

A fast pitch has the potential to be hit further than a slow pitch. Presuming the bat speed and squareness of contact are identical in hitting a fast pitch and slow pitch, the fast pitch will be hit further because in a nearly elastic collision more momentum will be returned from the fast pitch than the slow one resulting in a longer hit. In general a fast pitch is more difficult to hit than a slow one though which means the odds of making perfect contact are far lower.

What does HP in baseball mean?

Hit by pitch

Is a wild pitch that advances the runner to second and eventually scores an unearned run?

A wild pitch is considered part of pitching, and therefore a wild pitch contributing to a run does not make that run unearned. Had the runner advanced on a passed ball, or on an error on the pitcher, the run would be unearned, assuming that the run would not have scored anyway had the inning played out the way it did (this sometimes involves a judgment call by the official scorer). For example, if the runner reached second on a passed ball, scored on a single, and there were no further hits in the inning, the run would be unearned. However if after reaching second on the passed ball there were a pair of singles, or an extra base hit, the run probably would be scored as an earned run.

What's the best pitch to hit a grounder?

A pitch that is low or a pitch, like a sinker, that is dropping as it reaches the plate. This will usually make the batter swing over top of the ball and, if they make contact, they will hit the top of the ball resulting in a grounder.

There are 7 ways a baseball player can get to first base with out getting a hit what are they?

walk, error, fielders choice, player interfeerence, dropped 3rd strike, pinch runner and hit by pitch 1. Base on Balls 2. Intentional Base on Balls (scored separately to 1) 3. Hit by Pitch 4. Error 5. Fielder's Choice 6. Passed Ball 7. Wild Pitch Pinch Runner is NOT a way of scoring a REACH of 1st base. Runner Interference (if the batter himself is not out) is scored as a base hit. Catcher Interference is scored as an error. Fielder Obstruction is scored as an error. Any scenario you can think of will be scored as one of the above 7, or a base hit. (I am only referring to how the reach of first base is scored)
