It depends. If the batter tried to make contact with the ball, it is a strike. If the batter's hand was in the strike zone, it is a strike. Otherwise, it is a hit by pitch.

Difference between walk and strike on the softball game?

In softball, the batter can be walked, strikeout, or they can get a hit. Walks are caused by the batter accumulating 4 balls. A ball is a pitch thrown outside of the strike zone. A strike is a pitch thrown inside the strike zone. A batter can get a strike by either swinging and missing the ball, or they can get a strike from not swinging at a strike within the strike zone.


What is it called when a batsman hits the ball behind him?

In cricket, it's just a hit ball: the batsman can run if he wishes. To counter this, the defense will often put several defending players behind (called the slips) if they think the batsman will hit back there. In baseball, you must hit within the foul lines; hitting that ball behind is called a foul ball. This is called a strike (one of three), although a non-caught foul ball will not be called as the third strike.


If a batter steps on home plate to avoid being hit by a pitch is the pitch a strike?
