However, rules state a pitcher must pitch one complete at bat before being taken out of the game (unless the pitcher gets injured and cannot continue). So, as long as the batter being pitched to is not the first batter the pitcher is facing, the pitcher may be removed in the middle of the count.
A pitchers count is when the pitcher is leading the count and not the batter he is facing. (ex. If the count is 1-2 it would be a pitchers count because there are more strikes then balls.)
yes you can change pitchers anytime you want
I'm not sure.
Here is the motor switch code. You flip the first switch to the middle, then you switch the middle switch all the way to the bottom, the on the last switch you flip it down to the middle again. middle,down,middle
No, only runs scored unless it was home plate that was stolen, in that case, yes it would count.
The double switch is generally made to change the batting order. If the pitchers spot is due up the next inning switching two players allows the manager to decide which of the two will bat in the pitchers spot.
Baseball players have to figure out there batting average. Baseball pitchers have to count how many pitches they do, there is a limit.
I could not find any reliable data about middle school baseball pitchers being hit with baseballs. However, I'd guess that every ball player has been hit at least once.
Yes, pitchers and hitters can be substituted at any time. Hitters can be substituted at any time, but unless he is injured, a pitcher must pitch to at least one batter before he can be taken out. A pitcher can be removed in the middle of an at-bat, however, if he had pitched to at least one hitter previously.
