Sport: Baseball

An out in baseball occurs when an umpire calls the batter or base runner out. Once a player has been called out, it means that they can no longer score a run and must leave to return to the dugout and await their next turn at the bat

Outs can be made in various different ways, including tag outs, put outs and fly outs. During a tag out or put out, any defensive player who handles the ball will be awarded an assist.

Different ways of Making Outs 

Outs can be called for a variety of different reasons and in different scenarios, but the most common causes include:

  • The batter strikes out.
  • The ball is caught before landing after being batted, known as a fly out
  • A base runner is tagged out
  • A base runner is forced out.
