    Balls
    Hit with pitch
    Dropped on third strike
     Catcher's interference

    Spitball - umpire can rule that batter can take first base

    here's the question:

    there are 5 ways a baseball player can reach 1st base without hitting the ball.

    please list the 5 ways.



    Walk, IBB, HBP, Dropped third (PB), Swinging on WP 3rd strike, , Catchers Interference.

    That is six.

    Wouldn't a walk an IBB be the same thing?

    By "not hitting the ball," you obviously are including on base by an error or a fielder's choice, correct?

    bingo! we have a winner. i apologize for being ignorant on the illegal pitch rule, so 6 ways would be the correct number. please enjoy your dinner with softy.

     




    mryazz - Not to bring up generalities, but a walk and IBB are different. They are addressed different in a game. Also, a dropped third is different than a WP on the 3rd strike. You never see the later in a major league game, but it happens at the LL level and below.

    mryazz - I believe everyone forgot one more.  A balk. If there are 3 balls on the batter and the pitcher commits a balk, not only do the base runners advance a base, but the batter is awarded first base due to the balk creating a 'ball 4' situation.

    semantics, it's a walk, if it's the fourth pitch, balk or not. Also you can balk and still make your pitch and the batter can still swing at that pitch, has the option to do that.

    I might be mistaken, but I don't believe you get first on a balk if there's three balls.
