What Is The Definition Of Inside The Park Home Run In Baseball?
1. This is when a player hits a home run by not hitting the ball over the outfield fence. The baserunner must run and touch all four bases without there being an error on the play. The only way to get the baserunner out is to tag him. If an error occurs on the play, then the play is not an inside-the-park home run, rather it is then called advancing on an error.
