What Comes first balls or strikes?

When the umpire or TV announcer calls the ball and strike count, the balls come first. If you hear the announcer say something like "The count on the batter is 2 and 1" this means there are 2 balls and 1 strike.

If the count is three and two what are the odds that the first pitch will be a foul ball?

I have heard that you should bet someone the next pitch is a foul ball because odds are over %50. This happens most of the time I pay attention to the count.

Can a softball player get a strike if the ball is hit into false territory?

A foul can count as a strike if there is not two strikes. I f your fist pitch is a foul, that's strike one. If you get a strike first and then foul, that's strike two. Or if you gettwo fouls in a row with no strikes, that's strike one and two. If you have two strikes (no matter how you got them) you cannot strike out on a foul. So if you do foul in that situation, it does not count as anything and your pitch count remains the same.

Is foul ball counted as a strike?

It depends on how the game is being played. Most of the time, foul balls don't count as a strike; you can hit a ton of foul balls while you're up to bat and it won't matter. If you're playing a strict game of baseball, though, if you go up to bat and hit two foul balls, they count as strikes. Then, if you miss the ball or whatever, that would be your third strike. And you're out. :) Foul balls count as strikes when every the batter does not have two strikes, once a batter gets two strikes foul balls are no longer counted as strikes.

How many balls and strikes in a full count?

In baseball, this is when the batter has a 'count' of three balls and two strikes. It is called a full count because the batter cannot get another ball or strike without the at bat ending ... one more ball will cause a base on balls (walk) and one more strike will be a strikeout.

In baseball with two outs and a man on first base who is caught stealing second how many pictches can the hitter get in one at bat not counting foul balls?

Normally a batter can get as many as six pitches (3 balls, 2 strikes, then the final pitch), not counting foul balls. In this case, if a runner is caught stealing with 2 out as the count fills to 3 and 2, the batter will return with a fresh count to begin the next inning. He can then get another 6 pitches, in addition to the 5 he had in the same at bat in the previous inning, for a total of 11 pitches. Great update, I wasn't considering his return at bat in the next inning with my 5 pitch answer.

How many fouls make an out in softball?

You gain a strike from the first two balls that you foul off. After that, you have to get a legitimate strike (no fouls since they no longer count as an out) to become out.
