    Baseball trivia question

    I was able to get 6 of the 7... how well can you do?

    PM me with your answers, I will post the correct ones in white below in a separate post.

    There are seven ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit. Taking a base on balls -a walk- is one way. Name the other six.

    -keep.

    Re: Baseball trivia question

    Here are the ones I can think of: Hit by pitch, catcher interference, wild pitch on the 3rd strike, fielder's choice, error.

    It's not "passed ball," it should be "reach on error"

    Re: Baseball trivia question

    Wouldn't an error be considered reaching base without recording a hit too?

    Re: Baseball trivia question

    I believe that catcher's interference would be something along the the lines of their mitt getting in the way of a batter's swing.

    passed ball is a kind of error - I think it was an error in the answers

    Re: Baseball trivia question

    Pinch runner? I don't know if I'd count that as "reaching" first base. Great question though.

    Passed ball maybe, but a Wild Pitch is not an error, so that would count as one answer.

    My point is you can't reach first on a passed ball or wild pitch unless it's strike 3 or ball 4. I'm thinking that what was meant by "passed ball" was a wild throw to first base, which would be an error, not a passed ball.

    Re: Baseball trivia question

    I agree with CloneFan. That's pretty iffy (and also the one I couldn't get)

    I think they tried to cover themselves by saying "...a baseball player can legally..." instead of "...a batter can legally..."

    I'm not sure I buy it, though. I guess it depends of what your definition of "reach" is.

    Highlight to see my question: So, why didn't you type it in black, then highlight the selected text and change its color to white? Wouldn't that have been easier?
