That is considered a strike.
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
If the batter has the bat out over the plate when the ball hits them it is a strike... As long as the batter makes an attempt at the ball, like pushing or moving the bat to the ball then yes it would be a strike if they were hit.If the batter simply has the bat over the plate and is hit by the pitch out of the strike zone then its not a strike.
Bunt - it's where the batter holds the bat in front of the plate and taps the ball into play instead of swinging at it.
The taper is the area that the batter holds (the bottom)
if the ball is hit by the bat out the box by accident it still counts as a hit ... if the batter hits the ball while on the plate it's an out ...
if the batter is in bunting position(with the bat over the plate) he needs to pull the bat back. Otherwise strike. And if he has 2 strikes and fouls off a bunt its considered strike three.
Batting around the order happens when the 10th batter comes to the plate (actually the first batter up in the line-up)
A batter's box is one of two areas in baseball beside home plate in which a batter is required to stand during an at-bat.
Switching Sides of PlateYou are not allowed to switch sides of the plate once the first pitch of the at bat has been delivered
if it hits off the bat then the batter its autmatically foul but if they completely miss then its a strike
