 Base on balls - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Once a batter gets a hit, a base on balls, or otherwise reaches base, he is said to be "on" that base until he attempts to advance to the next base, he is put out, or the half-inning ends.
When a ball is hit in the air, a fly ball, and caught by the defending team, runners must return and touch the base they occupied at the time of the pitch—called tagging up—after the ball is caught.

 Intentional base on balls - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The purpose of an intentional walk is to bypass a good hitter in order to face a batter that the defensive team feels they have a better chance at getting out, or to set up a double play ball by putting a runner on first base.
The danger of issuing an intentional walk is that an extra batter is now on base for the following hitter.
In many cases, there is an additional danger that the batter who the opposing team chooses to face will feel slighted and work harder to get a hit.
