What happens if a runner is hit by a thrown ball? Is the runner out?

I could use some help on this one.
If a runner is attempting to advance to the next base and the defense throws a ball that hits the runner (even though the runner is in the baseline) is the runner called out?
Thanks.

If said runner is in the baseline and is hit with a thrown ball, he is not out unless he tried to interfere with the throw

no the runner is not out unless he throws his hands up trying to bat the ball down or something like that..........if that were the case kids would be playing dodge ball with a baseball
hope this helps
