Assuming you mean in Baseball: The number of pitches in the strike zone versus the number of pitches outside the strike zone.
in 7 innings of work ill say 78 strikes and 18 balls ...
A ball in base ball is a ball outside of the strike zone. The strike zone is from mid-chest to knees and over home plate. Any ball inside the strike zone is a strike.
The batter would be charged with a strike.
For the pitcher's ball/strike pitch numbers, it is counted as a strike.
Each time the batter hits the ball, either into fair or foul ground, no matter how much out of the strike zone the pitch may have been, the pitcher is "credited" with having thrown a strike in the "strike-ball" ratio. Since the latter has no effect on the score of the game or in any official statistics, this is not a problem.
If the pitch is in the strike zone, and the batter does not swing, it is a "strike." If the pitch is not in the strike zone, and the batter does not swing, it is a "ball."
If the bat is over the plate it is indeed a strike. It is considered an attempt to hit the ball and it does not matter where thepitch is in relation to the strike zone. Ball
A strike is a hittable pitch and a ball is off the plate.
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).
No, it would be a ball because it would be out of the strike zone as it crossed the plate.
when it is not in the strike zone. a strike is thrown when the ball crosses home plate.if it does not cross home plate it is a ball.
