A common baseball term that refers to a hit by a batter that gets him to first base.
The term can also appear as 1B in baseball stats. A single is similar to a double, where the batter gets to second base, and triple, where the batter gets to third base. A hit that gets the player all the way around the bases to home plate is a "home run," or HR. The hit contributes to raising a player's bating avg.
