Base hit

A base hit, otherwise referred to as just as hit, is a hit that a batter can make, which allows them to reach first base without indicating an error, fielder’s choice, or force play.

In order to score a base hit, a batter must hit a ball into fair territory and be able to reach at least first base without being tagged or put out in any way.

There are different kinds of base hits, including doubles, triples and home runs.
