Not allowed. Runner must RUN out the hit and get to first before being tagged out. The above is actually not true. according to the rules, you may slide into ANY base (including first). its just not very common due to the fact that you slow down when you slide, you therefore slow down. Because of the fact, it is a LOT faster to try and run out the hit and overun the base(which is allowed)

If it weren't for friction, a baseball would slide off of a bat when it should be hit.

Depends what you mean by "famous." In the 1880's, Mike "King" Kelly was as famous as any subsequent baseball star: he inspited a song ("Slide, Kelly, Slide") that was a huge hit, he was the first to publish an auto-biography (ghost-written), and he was the first to sign autographs. The purchase of his contract in 1886 for $10,000 was considered shocking at a time when some teachers were paid $72 A YEAR in wages.

Assuming they were both dropped from the same point, the baseball would hit the ground first.

Yes you can slide into first base. It has been done in Major contention games where every out counted. I.E. game 5 or 6 or 7 of a world series, division series, or the like. 9th inning. It is not comonly see because it is usually your close or you out when you hit the ball.

The batter can reach on an fielding error, take a walk (four balls), get hit by a pitch, or strike out on a wild pitch and beat the ball to 1st base.

You can slide into 1st base. Generally, it is not recommended. There are two scenarios where you may want to slide into first. 1) You have hit the ball and are running toward first. The first baseman is positioning to receive the throw. You can see that the throw is offline and the defender may try to tag you instead of touching the base, or the throw has put the defender in your basepath. You slide to avoid a tag or the defender. 2) You have a base hit and have rounded the bag. A throw is coming toward 1st base and you need to return. You may want to slide back to the bag to avoid the tag while off the base.
