1. Extra base hit

In baseball, an extra base hit, also known as a long hit, is any base hit on which the batter is able to advance past first base without the benefit of a fielder either committing an error or opting to make a throw to retire another base runner. Extra base hits are often not listed separately in tables of baseball statistics, but are easily determined by calculating the sum total of a batter's doubles, triples, and home runs. The record for most extra-base hits by one batter, in one game, is five, held by several different players, including Joe Adcock and Lou Boudreau. The record for most career extra-base hits is 1,477, held by Hank Aaron. Another related statistic of interest that can be calculated is "extra bases on long hits". A batter gets three of these for each home run, two for each triple, and one for each double. Thus, leading the league in "Most extra bases in long hits" is a significant accomplishment in power hitting.
