A hit in baseball is a statistic, credited to the batter, for reaching or passing first base after hitting the ball into fair territory

A hit won’t be counted on the back of an error, or fielder’s choice.

Different Types of Hit 

There are several different types of hit that can be achieved within a game of baseball, depending on what bases are taken. For example, a hit with one base taken is a single, a hit with two is a double, and a hit with three is a triple


A home run is achieved when a runner covers all four bases in a single hit.
