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.

Does a base on balls count as an at bat?

A base on balls counts as a plate appearance but not as an at bat. A base on balls does not affect a batter's batting average. Addendum: it also counts as a time on base, and figures into the batters on base percentage. As well, if the bases are loaded, and the batter is walked, it counts as an R.B.I. for the batter.

How many strikes per baseball game?

What is the maximum of strikes a baseball team can have in one game?

Well considering there are three strikes per out, (excluding foul balls with 2 strikes) and twenty seven outs per game, 27x3= 81, but that is if the other team scored at least a run. So in a nine inning game excluding 2 strike foul balls, 81. But if it goes to extra innings there could be an unlimited amount based on the other team's performance.

What is a rule about baseball?

Well that's pretty generic. The old adage, three strikes and you're out is the best known rule of baseball. Otherwise, each team sends a batter to home plate to try to hit a pitch from the pitcher. If you hit it and someone catches it before it hits the ground, you're out. If it hits the ground, and they throw it to first base before you get there, you're out. If not, you're safe and stay on first base and the next batter comes up. And you keep going until the team at bat makes three outs. Then you change sides and the team in the field comes to bat. Pitches can be balls, not over the plate, or strikes, thrown over the plate. Three stirkes you're out. Four balls and you get a base on balls, called a walk, and can go to first base. The team whose players get all the way around the bases and come back to home plate the most times in 6 or 9 innings wins.

What happens if you get walked?

In baseball statistics, a base on balls (BB), better known as a walk, is credited to a batter and against a pitcher when a batter receives four pitches that the umpire calls balls. It is called a "walk" because the batter is then entitled to walk to first base, or more specifically (as defined in the rules of baseball) he is "entitled to first base without liability to be put out." Any baserunner who is forced advances as well. Receiving a base on balls does not count as an official at bat for a batter but does count as a plate appearance. A pitcher can also choose to intentionally walk a batter. This is usually done for the purpose of facing a different batter that the team feels they have a better chance of getting out, or to allow a double play possibility if first base is open with less than two outs. A hit by pitch is not considered a walk, though the consequences are often the same for both.
