Best Answer

The fourth player in a Baseball batting rotation is traditionally called the "cleanup hitter". He is generally someone who hits for power and has the ability to hit lots of homeruns. That way he can clean the bases if any of the first three batters (usually good at getting base hits) gets on base.
