== == A magnitude of different scenarios exist for batting out of order, but I will try to give as simple and general of an answer as I can. I will break this down in to two parts, one for batting out of order and a pitch being thrown to the next batter, and one for no pitch having been thrown yet. If a pitch has been thrown to the player batting after the improper batter, everything stands: hit, walk, out, steal, anything. The only thing that could change is who is batting now. The person who SHOULD be batting now is whoever is listed after the improper batter in the lineup (assuming they have received a pitch).
So if you have batters 1,2,3,4,5, etc. #2 bats when #1 should have. He gets a hit. Batter #1 then comes to bat and takes a strike. Batting out of order is noticed. Batter #3 should be batting now because he is listed after batter #2. Batter #3 would assume whatever the count was that batter #1 had and bat in his place, then 4 then 5 and so on. If a pitch HAS NOT been thrown to the next batter after batting out of order, it gets tricky. Lets again assume batters 1,2,3,4,5, etc. #2 bats when #1 should have, and gets a hit, then batter #3 comes up, but the out of order is noticed before the pitch. Since #2 batted and #1 should have, #1 is called out, the runner is removed from the bases and the next spot in the order comes to bat, in the case, batter #2 will hit again. I would love to give a full breakdown but there are so many different scenarios and quirky tidbits that make this hard to explain, or understand for anybody. Just remember, If a pitch has not been thrown to the next batter, call the improper batter out, take away the plays that resulted from his actions (except for if he gets out, then its just a lineup modification) and get the batter in there who should be batting after the guy who SHOULD have batted in the first place. If a pitch HAS been thrown, just make sure you have the batter in the box who bats after the batter who went out of order.
When the New York Yankees started putting numbers on their uniforms, they used the numbers 1-8 for the players that were starters. The number of the player corresponded to the position in the batting order that the player hit. Lou Gehrig hit fourth in the batting order, so he was given #4. Babe Ruth hit third in the batting order, so he was given #3.
Generally, a double switch is executed when the new pitcher will be batting in the next inning. The manager will switch another player, usually one who batted late in the previous inning, and place the pitcher in the batting order position of the replaced player and the new player in the batting order position of the replaced pitcher. This means the new pitcher will not be scheduled to bat in the next inning unless the team starts a rally and scores some runs. Most often, a double switch is done by the team that is behind in the game. The manager may want to create a favorable batting matchup with the new player against the other team's pitcher in the next inning. If the pitcher is the first batter in the next inning, the manager may put a player in that batting order position that has good speed, is a good bunter, or some other factor in the hopes that the player will be able to get on base and get a rally started. When the double switching team is behind, the new player is almost always put in to increase offensive potential. If the team that double switches is ahead in the game, it is usually done to place a better defensive player in the game.
