Number of Balls a Pitcher Can Throw in One InningOn the 16th bal, the original player that was "walked" will cross the home plate. So 15 balls are the most you can throw in one inning.

23 - If the pitcher picks-off 2 of the runners, he can then walk two more batters before pithing 3 balls to the final batter.

I think that it could be 24. If the pitcher picks off 2 of the runners after loading the bases as you say. The pitcher walks two more hitters to load the bases. Then the pitcher throws 4 balls to the next hitter but the runner from third fails to touch home plate and on appeal, that runner is called out to end the inning.

What is the maximum number of pitches a batter can face in a single complete at-bat excluding foul balls?

A batter can have a full count of 2 and 3 and then get walked with ball nuber 4, so 6 pitches. However, consider the circumstance of a pitcher facing a batter with two outs and a runner on base. If the pitcher picks off a runner with the count full, the inning ends, and the same batter is up in the next inning with an empty count. Statistically, it is the same at bat, so the maximum number of pitches is in fact 11. 2 strikes and 3 balls in one inning, and either 3 strikes and 3 balls or 2 strikes and 4 balls to lead off the next inning.
