Yes. The batter can be changed. The balls and strikes are on the pitcher. If there is a new pitcher, the count goes to zero balls and zero strikes.
If you mean pitcher, then the batter walks to first base.
A base-on-balls is an instance in baseball where the batter is allowed to go directly to first base, due to the opposing pitcher delivering four balls.
A base on balls is an instance in baseball where the batter is allowed to go directly to base without the possibility of being out, due to the pitcher delivering four balls.
The pitcher giving up the last to balls gets "credited" with the walk.
If the pitcher throws four "balls", the batter is awarded first base (a "walk"). Sometimes, the batter is intentionallywalked as a strategic move. And if the pitcher hits the batter with a pitch, the batter is awarded first base, although that is not usually called a walk.
A base-on-balls is an instance in Baseball where the batter is allowed to go directly to first base, due to the opposing pitcher delivering four balls.
If a relief pitcher enters the game with a 2 ball 0 strikes on the batter and the batter receives a base on balls it is charged to the preceding pitcher. Any other action such as a base hit, fielder's choice, reaching base on an error, etc., is charged to the relief pitcher. (Rule 10.18 (g)).
The Batter can get to base: 1) with a good hit from a swing 2) when the pitcher pitches 4 balls 3) when the batter is hit by a pitched ball
Anytime a batter is at the plate, a pitcher and catcher can agree to throw nothing but balls to that batter. However, no pitcher would do so without getting an order from the manager to do so -- but, again, the manager can make that decision at any time the batter is at the plate. It is NORMALLY done as soon as the batter arrives at the plate. But, if a manager orders a pitcher to throw four un-hittable balls after the batter has swung and missed badly on the first two pitches, that would not be a violation of the rules.
The batter has the advantage when he is opposite handed of the pitcher. Curve balls and sliders will come into the batter instead of going away. It's also easier to see a fastball coming into to you from the opposite hand.
cause it's harder to throw a strike then a ball ...
