What is a five letter word for awaiting the pitch?

at bat (atbat)

Can a batter decline taking first base and continue his atbat after being hit by a pitched ball?

No he or she can not continue batting. Once a player is hit by a pitch, they are automatically given first base and that ends their at bat.

In baseball are you allowed to switch the way you hit during an atbat?

Yes you are. You can even if you have two strikes on you

Can a apitcher switch hands during an atbat?

No. Otherwise you would get this situation: 1) Batter bats a specific side of the plate to get an advantage over pitcher. 2) Pitcher switches pitching hand to negate the advantage. 3) Batter changes side to regain advantage. 4) Repeat steps (2) and (3) ad infinitum. To prevent this, baseball has decided that step (1) is the end of the loop.

What atbat song is played for Jacoby Ellsbury?

Can a pitcher change his delivery from pitch to pitch like slide-step to full leg kick back to slide-step while pitching to the same batter?

A pitcher can change his release type as many times as he wants during any atbat. Of course most pitchers don't. If there aren't any baserunners on then he will use the full leg kick to generate the most power. If he has baserunners on the he will use the slide step in order for runners to have less of a jump in case they want to steal. Sometimes you will see a pitcher use the full leg kick with a runner on third base because runners do not usually steal home. Therocket4ever
