On percentage do more balls get hit to right field or left field?

Don't know the percentages, but left field is more common. Most batters are right handed, and, on averge, a batter is more likely to "pull" the ball when he hits it. (Note: when a batter is said to "hit to the opposite field", that means that a right-handed batter hits to right field or a left-handed batter hits to left field. On the surface, this is not "opposite field" at all. But it's called "opposite field" because it goes against the natural tendency of a right hander to hit to left field and a left-hander to hit to right field.)

An inside out swing in baseball is a swing where the hands come through ahead of the end of the bat which causes the ball to be hit to the opposite field (right field for a right hander or left field for a left hander). Wade Boggs produced many doubles off the "Green Monster" in Fenway by "inside-outing" the ball to left field. At the point of impact the bat forms a greater than 90 degree angle if one imagines an imaginary line between dead center field which continues through home plate. When a right hander hits a ball to left field or a left handed batter hits the ball to right field the ball is said to be pulled and the bat would usually form an angle of less than 90 degrees at the point of impact.

If a pitcher throws the ball to the the batter and he doesn't hit it?

If he swings at the ball and doesn't hit it, it is called a strike. There is a spot in front of the batter called the strike zone. It's a little square area that is as wide as home plate, and stretches from the batter's knees to the letters on his jersey. If the ball lands in this area and the batter doesn't swing, it's called a strike. Any other place would be called a ball.
