Topic: Hit (baseball)


In the News (Sun 21 Apr 19)

  
  Hit (baseball) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball statistics, a hit (denoted by H), sometimes called a base hit, is credited to a batter when the batter safely reaches first base after hitting the ball into fair territory, without the benefit of an error or a fielder's choice.
The hit is scored the moment the batter reaches first base safely - if the runner is put out while attempting a double or triple on the same play, he still gets credit for the hit.
A hit for one base is called a single - the number of singles is equal to the total number of hits minus the number of extra base hits.

 Longest Home Run Ever Hit by Baseball Almanac
That was the start of modern long-distance hitting, and it is a testimony to Ruth's uniqueness that he was able to set objective standards of performance that have never been surpassed.
Mantle, or anyone else, had sufficient strength to hit a ball that was still traveling upward when it met the towering facade, he would also have enough strength to clear that same facade by a distance of at least 100 feet.
Allen could not hit with the same power in those directions as when he pulled the ball, but he seems to have lost less distance than almost anyone else when hitting to the opposite field.

Bill Jenkinson, a prominent baseball historian, has measured a homer that the Great Bambino clobbered after a 1926 exhibition game in Wilkes-Barre as having traveled at least 600 feet and says he believes it to be the longest home run ever hit.
Ruth, apparently awestruck by the feat, is said to have remarked that the ball was the longest he had ever hit, Jenkinson said.
He and other baseball experts say home runs of distances are hard to document precisely, though it's fitting that the larger-than-life slugger might have the longest homer.

 It's a hit: Baseball camp scores with kids
More than 200 children were hitting, fielding, and rounding bases on Harvard's baseball diamonds this summer during three weeklong baseball camps designed not just to keep the kids busy, but also to teach the finer points of the game.
Their enthusiasm led Harvard Baseball Coach Joe Walsh to conclude that "99 percent of them are baseball fanatics" and to boldly declare baseball's recovery complete after years of declining interest.
Walsh and the camp's 11 other coaches emphasize things that children may not think of, such as the importance of learning to play more than one position to give them versatility, the importance of weight training, and how to handle being a member of the team when you're not playing.

 Extra base hit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, an extra base hit (EB, EBH or XBH), also known as a long hit, is any base hit on which the batter is able to advance past first base without the benefit of a fielder either committing an error or opting to make a throw to retire another baserunner (see fielder's choice).
Extra base hits are often not listed separately in tables of baseball statistics, but are easily determined by calculating the cumulative total of a batter's doubles, triples, and home runs.
