As the topic says there are 8 ways too get on first as a batter, I can personally only think of 6 and they are:

1: Single base hit.
2: Base on balls.
3: Hit by pitch.
4: Reach on KPB/KWP.
5: Error by a fielder.
6: Catchers interference.

Which is the seventh and eighth?

Interfering with the runner; e.g. first baseman locks the running lane, is one.

Would Fielders Choice Count?

The runner who was on 1st going to 2nd would be out but the batter would be on 1st base and thus would of reached 1st

The only other one of the top of my head would be Fan Interference.

I think that the two you are missing may be:

Bunt squeeze (push down the 3rd base line)

and

stealing 1st (swing on 3rd strike and running)

KPB/KWp is stealing the first base so to speak and bunt squeeze classifies as a fielders choice or a basehit depending on the outcome... tongue.gif
And yeah, fielders choice was one of the smiple ones I forgot...
And about the interfence call by the first baseman, it might be the one but it's similar to the catchers interference...

Surely a BALK by the pitcher has to be one of them?

An advance on a balk only applies to runners already on base.

How about the pitcher defacing the ball?
