Baseball Hits

Hello everyone! Spring is here and baseball season is right around the corner! To get you ready I am going to introduce you to the four basic hits in the sport of baseball.

 

When a player smacks a pitch with his bat and it lands in the field of play (or over the outfield fence) it is called a hit. These are the four basic hits a player can get when playing baseball.

 

Single – A player hits a single when they get to first base after putting the ball into the field of play.

 

Double – In baseball, a hit is called a double when a player knocks the ball into the field of play and makes it to second base before the next pitch is thrown.

 

Triple – A batter hits a triple when they are able to run all of the way to third base after hitting the baseball into the field of play.

 

Home Run – A home run is when a baseball player hits a pitch so far that it goes over the fence or wall, at the back of the outfield, in a baseball park.

 

There are a lot of other hits in baseball that we can learn about later on. I’ll talk to you guys soon. I’m off to practice my swing for the upcoming season!

 

 

Your friend,
