Home run

Home run(Really),Home run(English: home run) IsbaseballInbatter OfRecord.sports newspaperOn paper,HRIs often abbreviated.


  1. The regular hit ball hit by the battergroundOr without touching anything "other than a fielder"(This is called "in-flight state"), when you pass through the foul line of both wings and the intersection of the fence (including on the intersection) and go out of the playing field. Or, the foul line extends vertically from the point where it crosses the fenceFoul poleOr, if you hit a wire mesh with a length of several tens of centimeters extending to the fair zone side of the pole[1].. "Getting out of the playing field" meansstandIt means entering the building and even going out of the stadium through the stand (outside home run). This includes the case where the player hits a wall outside the playing field (such as a back screen) and bounces back to the field again. To go out of the playing field in "in flight" means not only when you go out of the field by grabbing a fielder's grab, but also when a flying ball that normally should not go out of the field is a fielder's grab or head. Including the case of entering the stand because it bounced off.
  2. UmpireWhen the fielder removes the glove or hat from the place where he should wear it and throws it, and actually changes the course of the hit ball.However, even if it is thrown, if it does not hit the ball, the competition continues as it is.

In case of 1 and 2 aboveBall deadThe referee then declared a "home run" with a gesture of turning his right hand overhead, and all the batters, including the batter,runnerUp to home baseSafety advancement rightIs given. Runners run regular bases up to home basescoreWill be. 1 point for solo, 2 points for 2 runs, 3 points for 3 runs, 4 points for full base orGrand slamCalled.When the batter-runner officially runs to home run and a score is recognized, the batter is recorded with a home run.

"In-flight condition" means that the batter hit by the batter is not on the ground or on anything other than a fielder, so after touching the fielder once, he entered the stand without falling to the ground. In that case, it means "I went out of the playing field while in flight". That is, if a hit ball that has touched a fielder in the fair area and has not fallen to the ground meets the above definitions 1 and 2, it is a home run, and the referee declares a "home run".[2]. However,If the official scorer determines that the fielder's act of touching the ball is a misstep, the batter will be given the right to advance safely to the home run, but the batter will only record the misstep and will hit home runs, hits and RBIs. Not recorded(Called 4-base error in English)[3]..Once the fielder touches the ball, it is decided whether it is fair or foul at that point.[4].. Therefore, if the fielder touches the ball on the foul ground and enters the stand on the fair zone side while in flight, it is a foul ball. On the other hand, if a fielder touches the ball at the fair ground and enters the stand on the foul zone side in the in-flight state, it becomes a ball dead and the referee declares a double run (entitled to base).[5].

Fielders are also allowed to jump on the fence and attempt to catch a ball. If the fielder who climbs up the fence catches a ball that is likely to be a home run in the playing field, if he remains in the playing field with the ball caught, he touches the ball, but if the ball falls to the ground, It becomes ball-in-play. In addition, if the player who catches the ball enters the stand, if the umpire does not consider the ball to be a regular ball, then the referee judges that he has entered the home run. In the case of being dead and not dying or dying, one runner on the first base will be given to the runner on the first base.[6](1979Official baseball rules2.15 "Catch" [Original Note][7]Was added, but the rule itself to be out has not been revised).Touch upIt is the same action as, but in this case the runner will not be out due to the ball dead condition.

Note that fielders who are climbing fences, etc. are considered to be playing with the danger in mind, and even if they are disturbed by the audience, the referees will not declare the disturbance. However, if the spectator crosses the fence and reaches out to the playing field to obstruct the fielder or hit the ball, the referee will declare the obstruction and the ball will be dead. The referee will determine what the competition would look like without interference and take action after the ball dead.[8].

If the hit ball hits the top of the outfield fence, it will be fair at that point, but when the hit ball hits the stand, whether or not it is judged as a home run depends on the ground. In general, the boundary line for determining a home run is set at the top of the fence, so if the ball hits the stand or touches the pole afterwards, it is a home run, and if it falls into the playing field or is handled by a fielder, it is in play. However, if there is a handrail installed on the fence, for example, the handling is specified at each baseball field, and in this case, the defined boundary line is treated as being equivalent to the top of the fence.

Dome StadiumIf the ball hits or is caught in the ceiling or suspended objects in the fair area, the ball will be certified as a home run depending on the location.Ground ruleHas been defined. For more informationDome Stadium Special RulesSee section.

Japanese professional baseballIn 2009, the test was introduced, and from 2010 only on home runsVideo judgmentWas completely introduced[9].. The first video judgment application is March 1Tokyo DomeMade inYomiuri GiantsversusTokyo Yakult SwallowsHit a home run withAaron GaielIs. He bounced near the top of the mid-sized fence, hit the top of the fence and bounced back, and was in play. However, shortly afterwards, the referee's video was confirmed in the referee room, and as a result, the decision was overturned, saying, "We are over the fence and have a home run." "In the video, the hit ball has disappeared (at the top of the net) and we decided that it was a home run," he explained.

Running home run

Of the bats hit by the batter, the defensive side hits the fair ball that has fallen even once on the ground.faux pasWhile processing withoutBatter runner"Running home run" when he reaches the first base[10](Running book) in this caseBall in playThere is no referee's "home run" sentence. On the record, it is recorded as a home run as in 1 and 2 above.

Abek home run

Abek home run(Abek bullets, Abek home runs, Abek homers, Abek arches, and Abek guns) are home runs shot by two players in the same team in the same match. Count the number of times for each match. If one or both players achieve more than one home run in a match, it counts as one (without increasing according to the number of home runs hit). It doesn't happen very often if two hitters do not belong to the same team at the same time. As noted below, special names may be given special names.
