Depending on which wall and which stadium the ball hits, it might be a hit or a foul ball. At any level of baseball, if a ball hits a wall and is collected by a fielder, the hitter is never out. No When the ball strikes a wall, it's the same as striking the ground. If it's a home run, great. If it isn't, then show me what I did wrong and why I shouldn't have been given first base.
In addition, if a ball bounces off a wall and is not touched by a player, it is considered dead and can be picked up by any member of the team. The batter is allowed to continue batting while the pitcher goes to get the ball. When he returns, the pitcher can either throw the ball back over the plate or keep hold of it. If he throws it back over the plate, there is no rule that requires him to do so. He can stand there with the ball in his hand if he wants to. But if he keeps hold of it, he has violated the rules and is called for throwing at batsmen. This is another example of how important it is for all field players to work together as a unit. If one player leaves his position, another can fill in at a much lower cost to the team. In this case, if the pitcher throws the ball away instead of returning it to the plate, the batter is awarded first base because there are no other members of the team to move.
When the ball bounces on a boundary line or fully outside of the boundaries, hits the ground before hitting the wall, bounces twice before a player can return it, or a receiving player does not let the ball bounce after it has struck the wall, the ball is out. Remove a stumbling receiving player. If any other player is involved in the incident, they too will have to leave the court.
There are three ways to score when playing against a defensive wall: free throws, field goals, and baskets in transition. The only way to stop the defensive wall is by switching on screens, which forces players off the bench into the game. Screens can be used either for defenders to switch onto one player so he can't help out on the floor or for all five players to switch teams so each one gets at least one turn on the court.
In general, play against a defensive wall by having your best shooters shoot early in the clock while keeping your other players involved in the offense. This will make it harder for the defense to switch players and will give you more opportunities for made shots!
If a ball is caught on a fly off the wall without touching the ground, the thrower must touch the wall before the new catcher does. A player drops a ball when attempting to catch it off the wall. This player must again contact the wall before another player strikes it with the ball.
If a ball is caught after it has hit the ground, only the person who threw it out is required to touch the wall.
A batter is out when: (1) He fails to touch home plate during his turn at bat; or (2) If he touches home plate with any part of his body other than his hand or foot, he is out. If a batter is out because of rain or darkness, then he may not be replaced. He can remain out until the end of the inning if necessary. However, if the rain stops and the umpire believes that the game can continue, then the batter can enter the field of play and resume playing. If he leaves the area occupied by the baseball diamond before returning to the field of play, then he is out. For example, if a batter is out in the on-deck circle during his turn at bat and a runner scores while he is away from the plate, then the batter is considered out even though he did not touch home plate.
An error occurs when there is a mistake made by a fielder while trying to make a catch.
