If the batter attempts to hit the ball and misses, it is a strike. If the batter does not attempt to hit the ball and the ball enters the strike zone, it is a strike. If the batter does not attempt to hit the ball and the ball does not enter the strike zone, it is a ball (unless it hits the batter, then the batter is awarded 1st base).
If he swings at the ball and doesn't hit it, it is called a strike.
There is a spot in front of the batter called the strike zone. It's a little square area that is as wide as home plate, and stretches from the batter's knees to the letters on his jersey. If the ball lands in this area and the batter doesn't swing, it's called a strike.
Any other place would be called a ball.
In that case, the catcher is supposed to catch the ball , but sometimes they don't.
A pitcher is the person who pitches, or throws, the ball to the batter.
The pitcher throws the ball to the batter in baseball
Because where and how the pitcher throws the ball has a lot to do with where and how hard the batter hits it. If the pitcher is throwing the ball on the corners of the plate, moving the ball up and down in the strike zone, and changing speeds generally the batter will not hit as hard as the pitcher who throws the ball, no matter how hard, over the middle of the plate. The defense will usually set its positions based on how a pitcher is going to pitch to a batter. If the defense plays a batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws a pitch on the outside corner at the knees, the batter is usually going to hit that ball to the opposite field, maybe sometimes up the middle. If the defense is playing the batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws the ball belt high over the inside half of the plate, chances are the batter will hit the ball very hard and pull the ball away from where the defense is setup.
No. You fool.
the one who throws the ball to the batter (stands in the middle of the field on the white rubber)
It Is Fair As Long As The Batter Swings And They Hit The Ball... As Long As It Is Inside The Foul Lines The Ball Is In Play.
Yes. The pitcher is the person on the mound in the center of the infield who throws the ball at the batter. Usually, they are an integral part of the game.
its a dead ball and a strike, but not strike 3, just like a foul.
usually the pitcher but evry body throwes the ball
the pitcher is the player that throws the ball to the batter in the games. Most of the time the pitcher stays the same (major league) but sometimes the pitcher changes (youth league).
No, it is simply ball four and the runner is safe and the batter is awarded first base on a base on balls.
He throws the ball.
