In baseball, a “hit” is simply a condition in which the batter hits the ball into play and (at least) reaches 1st base safely.
“Safely” means the batter reached a base without being tagged with the ball first or beat to the base by a defensive player in possession of the ball, or reached the base because the ball wasn’t caught before it touched the ground. In order to be ruled as a hit, the batter CANNOT reach the base on an error or a fielder’s choice.
