Object pronouns n the middle of sentences

0

Are these sentences grammatically correct? Am I allowed to use the object pronouns in the middle of these sentences: * Tell him to be quiet. * The batter hit a ball that sent him (the fielder) racing towards the wall. * She showed them a picture of him skiing. * He invites her to accompany them. * He called her by name. * He gave her an angry look.

A pronoun replaces a noun. 

 

The batter hit the ball toward Jack.

He hit the ball toward Jack.

The batter hit it toward Jack.

The batter hit the ball toward me.

 

As an object, a noun (or a pronoun) can be a direct or indirect object.  If there is an indirect object, the direct object will be in the middle of the sentence - after the subject and verb, and before the indirect object.

 

Jack invites Jill to accompany the group. 

He invites her to accompany them.

Those all look good to me!  Batter is correct if you're talking about baseball...batsman is a cricketing term, I think.
