If a Batter is hit by pitch with runner on second base as runner steals third is this legal?

Nope, when the batter is hit it is a dead ball.

Is anyone credited with a run batted in when a runner steals home?

No because the batter had nothing to do with the runner scoring.

What is the most steals a team can get in an inning without scoring a run?

Ten - First batter reaches steals two bases tagged out at plate. Second batter does the same. Third batter steals two bases and fourth batter steals one. Ten is the answer but alternatively, first batter gets on and steals two bases (2). Next batter reaches first and steals second (3). Third batter reaches first and now with three runners on each base a triple steal could be executed with the 3rd base runner being tagged out (5). Repeat last sentence, (7). Then the fifth batter gets walked, and a triple steal is attempted. The runner from third gets caught in a rundown. The runner from second steals third (8). The runner from first steals second and third (10). Then one of the three runners now between third and home gets tagged out before the lead runner can score.

Is it possible to hit 3 triples 3 singles and have a stolen base in one inning?

Batter 1: Triples but is out at the plate trying to stretch it to an inside the park homerun. Batter 2: Triples but is out at the plate trying to stretch it to an inside the park homerun. Batter 3: Triples and stays at third. Batter 4: Hits an infield single, runner holds at third. Batter 4: Steals second while runner at third holds. Batter 5: Hits an infield single, runners at second and third hold. Batter 6: Hits a ball that strikes a baserunner in play. Runner is out and batter is credited with a single. No runs, 6 hits, a stolen base, and three LOB.

How many stolen bases can you have in one inning without scoring?

I think the answer is 10.previous answer and explanation:1st batter reaches, steals 2nd and 3rd, gets thrown out at home. (2 SB, 1 out) 2nd batter reaches, steals 2nd and 3rd, gets thrown out at home. (4 SB, 2 out) 3rd batter reaches, steals 2nd and 3rd. (6SB, 2 out) 4th batter reaches and steals 2nd. (7 SB, 2 out)There were 0 runs answer and explanation:I think the answer is 10. Two runners steal 2nd and 3rd and get picked off for 4 stolen bases and two outs. The third batter also steals 2nd and 3rd to bring the total to 6. The 4th batter walks and steals 2nd for the 7th stolen base. Everything to this point was how the previous answer of 7 was discussed. Then the 5th hitter walks. Then all three runners try to steal. The runner from third gets caught in a rundown. The runner from 2nd steals 3rd, and the runner from first steals 2nd and 3rd to bring the total to 10 stolen bases before any of the 3 runners now between 3rd and home get tagged out. Also the 3rd out occurs before home plate is touched by the lead runner.Read more: What_is_the_highest_amount_of_stolen_bases_in_one_inningQuestion:I don't think the runners from 1st or 2nd can be awarded steals until the completion of a play, which would be when the runner from third is tagged, thus ending the inning. This is a weird scenario, but when there is a double steal attempt and the runner is thrown out at 3rd base for the last out of the inning, the runner going to 2 does not get credit for a steal, even though he may have reached the bag prior to the tag.

If a pitcher starts from stretch and comes to the set position runner steals second base and touches it pitcher delivers pitch and it's fouled off does runner go back to first base?

Yes, the runner would go back to 1st base if the batter fouls off the pitch.

In baseball what is the difference between hit and run and run and hit?

In a run and hit the runner has the option to steal or not depending on whether he gets a good jump and the batter has the option to swing or not depending on if it is a pitch he wants to hit. In a hit and run, the runner steals and the batter is supposed to swing. The run and hit is a safer play.

How do you steal home?

A steal of home is exciting, but rarely done in modern baseball. In contrast, Ty Cobb stole home 54 times! The classic or "pure" steal is where the runner steals with no help from the batter. For example, if the runner notices the pitcher is not holding him close and/or the 3rd baseman is way off the bag, the runner can get a walking lead or a large secondary lead and then take off as the pitcher is still winding up and then try to score. The element of surprise often makes this successful. There are two squeeze bunt plays that can be called by the coach that allow the runner on 3rd to score. However, if successful, it is due to the hit of the batter and is therefore not technically a steal. a. Safety squeeze, a play called by the coach. The runner runs home after seeing the batter (who is of course also in on the play) bunt successfully anywhere EXCEPT to the pitcher. That is, if the bunt is left or right of the pitcher, the runner takes off and attempts to score. b. Suicide squeeze. Here the runner assumes the batter will indeed make contact with a bunt and assumes it will not be hit in the air and caught (opening up double play risks). When the play is called, the runner simply takes off and trusts the batter to bunt successfully. Very risky. Note that there are 28 ways or situations in which a runner on 3rd can score in baseball. These are 3 of them.

The pinch runner gets credit for the stolen base, and for any run he might score.
