1. This occurs in baseball and softball when a batter hits the ball within fair territory and the batter successful rounds all the bases without stopping and scores a run. One variation that a home run can happen is when the ball is hit within fair territory and it does not leave the field of play and the batter is able to run around the full circuit of bases, without an error occuring. The other, more common way, is when a batter hits the ball over the outfield fence, within fair territory.
1. The batter swings and hits the ball over the right field wall for a three-run home run.
