There are many ways. Some of the most common are as


1. catching a batted ball in the air

2. tagging a runner

3. forcing a runner out

4. striking out a batter

Some of the less common ones are as follows;

1. Infield fly rule - (if there is a runner on any first, and if

there is less than 2 outs, and the batter hits a pop up in the

infield, the umpires can automatically call the batter out- this

prevents the infielder from intentionally dropping the ball, and

forcing the double play)

2. Dropped strike three - (if there is a two strike count, and if

you swing and miss, and if the catcher drops the ball, you can run

to first and try to beat the ball)
