The first 2 foul balls that are hit and not caught are considered strikes. After that, there is no limit to the amount of foul balls that can be hit, as long as they're not caught.

If there are two strikes, a foul ball no longer counts as a strike. In theory, a player could foul off balls forever and never be out. The unverified record is 22, but since the statistic is not kept, it is not confirmed.

How many pitches can a batter see in one at bat?

Here are some answers from the community:Well, if he keeps hitting foul balls he could theoretically stay there forever. Doesn't usually happen though. Three strikes and he's out. Four balls and he walks. Theoretically, unlimited. If the batter keeps hitting 3rd strike foul balls, he could stay there indefinitely.11 pitches. Two outs in the inning, runner on base, 3-2 count, and runner gets caught stealing for the 3rd out. The same batter leads off the next with the same at bat receiving a 3-2 count for a total of 10 pitches, the 11th pitch is a hit, walk, or strike out.


How many foul balls can a batter have?

You can technically have infinite foul balls (assuming they go out of the playing field and are not caught). The exception is if there are already 2 strikes and you foul the ball off but it goes right into the catchers mitt. Then you're out. Also, if they're are 2 strikes and you attempt a bunt and hit it foul then you are out. ---------- Above answer is almost correct... A batter can hit an unlimited number of fouls, but a foul that is caught in the air is not counted as a foul. It's simply an out. Also, a ball that is hit straight back to the catcher who then catches it is not a foul...it is a "foul tip," and the ball is still alive, so that's not a foul either. And it doesn't matter if there are 2 strikes, or 1 strike or 0 strikes, or what the count is at all.

There is no limit to the number of fouls in the MLB.The only rules about foul balls is if a batter attempts to bunt with two strikes and the ball is bunted foul, the batter is called out.
