In Baseball, baserunning is the act of running around the bases performed by members of the team at bat The object of the game is for a team to score more runs than its opponent.
In baseball statistics, a player who advances around all the bases to score is credited with a run (R), sometimes referred to as a "run scored. Statistics play an important role in summarizing Baseball performance and evaluating players in the Sport. " While runs scored is considered an important individual batting statistic, it is regarded as less significant than runs batted in (RBIs)—superiority in the latter, for instance, is one of the elements of the exceptional batting achievement known as the Triple Crown. For other uses of this term see Triple crown In Baseball, the Triple Crown refers to A batter who (at season's end leads Both individual runs scored and runs batted in are heavily context-dependent; for a more sophisticated assessment of a player's contribution toward producing runs for his team, see runs created.

A team's lineup is designed in order to maximize the possibility of producing runs, both by increasing the chances that runners will be on base when a power hitter comes to bat, and by the process known as "manufacturing" runs. The batting order, or batting lineup, in Baseball is the sequence in which the nine members of the offense take their turns in batting against the In Baseball statistics, slugging percentage (abbreviated SLG) is a popular measure of the power of a hitter. A team is said to manufacture a run when it takes several plays to move a baserunner around the bases and bring him home to score. The general process of manufacturing a run begins with a batter getting to first base via a single or walk. First base, or 1B, is the first of four stations on a Baseball diamond which must be touched in succession by a baserunner in order to score a run In Baseball, a single is the most common type of base hit, accomplished through the act of a batter safely reaching First base by hitting Walking (also called ambulation) is the main form of Animal Locomotion on land, distinguished from Running and crawling The team will then seek to advance him to second base, often via a sacrifice bunt or his own steal, or third base, via a hit and run.

In Baseball, a leadoff hitter is a batter who bats first in the lineup. An inning, or innings, is a fixed-length segment of a game in any of a variety of Sports &ndash most notably Cricket and Baseball during If the runner is on second with no outs, sometimes a sacrifice bunt will be employed to advance him to third, from where not only a hit but also a sacrifice fly or squeeze play (if luck has it, also a wild pitch or passed ball) can enable him to score. In Baseball, an out occurs when the defensive or fielding, team effects any of a number of different events and the umpire rules a batter In Baseball statistics, a hit (denoted by H) sometimes called a base hit, is credited to a batter when the batter safely reaches In Baseball, a batted ball is considered a sacrifice fly if the following four criteria are met There are fewer than two outs when the ball is hit In Baseball, the squeeze play is a maneuver consisting of a Sacrifice bunt with a runner on Third base.
