Did You Know?


When reading from a sports book Howard says that there is six ways a baseball player can reach first base without getting a hit. He doesn't identify them but they are: a base on balls, being hit by a pitch, catcher's interference, a fielder's error, a fielder's choice, and when the batter strikes out but the catcher drops or misses the ball and he isn't thrown out before running to first base.
