Strikeout
In baseball or softball , a STRIKEOUT (or STRIKE-OUT) occurs when a batter accumulates three strikes during a time at bat . It usually means the batter is out . A strikeout is a statistic recorded for both pitchers and batters , and is denoted by K. Although a strikeout suggests that the pitcher dominated the batter, the free-swinging style that generates home runs also leaves batters susceptible to striking out. Some of the greatest home run hitters of all time — such as Alex Rodriguez , Gorman Thomas , Reggie Jackson , and Sammy Sosa — were notorious for striking out

Stolen Base
In baseball , a STOLEN BASE occurs when a runner advances to a base to which he is not entitled and the official scorer rules that the advance should be credited to the action of the runner. The umpires determine whether the runner is safe or out at the next base, but the official scorer rules on the question of credit or blame for the advance under Rule 10. A stolen base most often occurs when a baserunner advances to the next base while the pitcher is pitching the ball to home plate . Successful base stealers are not only fast but have good baserunning instincts and timing

Triple (baseball)
In baseball , a TRIPLE is the act of a batter safely reaching third base after hitting the ball, with neither the benefit of a fielder's misplay (see error ) nor another runner being put out on a fielder\'s choice . Triples have become somewhat rare in Major League Baseball
Baseball
. It often requires a ball hit to a distant part of the field, or the ball taking an unusual bounce in the outfield . It also usually means that the batter hit the ball solidly, and be a speedy runner. (The inside-the-park home run is much rarer than a triple). The trend for modern ballparks is to have smaller outfields (often increasing the number of home runs ); it has ensured that the career and season triples leaders mostly consist of those who played early in Major League Baseball

To hit many doubles, one must have decent hitting skill and power; it also helps to run well enough to beat an outfield throw. Doubles typically drive in runs from third base , second base, and even from first base at times

Run (baseball Statistics)
In baseball , a RUN is scored when a player advances around first, second and third base and returns safely to home plate , touching the bases in that order, before three outs are recorded and all obligations to reach base safely on batted balls are met or assured. A player may score by hitting a home run or by any combination of plays that puts him safely "on base" (that is, on first, second, or third) as a runner and subsequently brings him home. The object of the game is for a team to score more runs than its opponent. The Official Baseball
Baseball
Rules hold that if the third out of an inning is a force out of a runner advancing to any base then, even if another baserunner crosses home plate before that force out is made, his run does not count. However, if the third out is not a force out, but a tag out , then if that other baserunner crosses home plate before that tag out is made, his run will count

Hit (baseball Statistics)
In baseball statistics , a HIT (denoted by H), also called a BASE HIT, is credited to a batter when the batter safely reaches first base after hitting the ball into fair territory, without the benefit of an error or a fielder\'s choice . CONTENTS* 1 Scoring a hit * 1.1 Types of hits * 2 Pitching a no-hitter * 3 History * 4 Major League Baseball rules * 5 See also * 6 References SCORING A HITTo achieve a hit, the batter must reach first base before any fielder can either tag him with the ball, throw to another player protecting the base before the batter reaches it, or tag first base while carrying the ball. The hit is scored the moment the batter reaches first base safely; if he is put out while attempting to stretch his hit to a double or triple or home run on the same play, he still gets credit for a hit (according to the last base he reached safely on the play)

CNN SI
CNN SPORTS ILLUSTRATED (CNNSI) was a 24-hour sports news channel. It was created by Time Warner , bringing together its CNN and Sports Illustrated brands and related resources. It was launched on December 12, 1996. CNN/SI aimed to provide the most comprehensive sports news service on television, bringing in-depth sports news from around the world, and integrating the Internet and television. What led to CNN/SI's demise was that it had the misfortune of being created at about the same time as all-sports news rivals ESPNews and Fox Sports Net 's National Sports Report . Though CNN/SI could boast of exclusives such as the tape of Indiana University player Neil Reed , appearing to be choked by former coach Bob Knight , the channel reached about only 20 million homes, not enough to receive a rating by Nielsen Media Research , which was a killer with sponsors. ESPNews benefited from the leverage ESPN (86.5 million homes) has with cable operators
