In baseball the fielding positions are pitcher, catcher, first base, second base, shortstop, third base, center field, left field, and right field.

The seven ways to get to first base without getting credit for a hit are bunting, walking, getting hit with a pitch, having someone try for a foul ball and fail to catch it, having someone pinch hit, pitcher balking, and kissing a girl. Baseball players joke about this all the time.
