In baseball what is a bak?

The word is balk. In baseball, the offensive players do not need to stand on the base. They can stand off the base. When the pitcher has the ball, he is allowed to throw it to a teammate and the teammate can touch the opponent not on base with the ball. The opponent will be out and will leave the playing field. The pitcher can face the batter and then turn around and throw the ball to a teammate. The purpose of the pitcher is to throw the ball across home plate so the batter can hit it or not hit it. At some point the pitcher has to pitch the ball to the batter. The pitcher has to make some sort of a motion and then pitch the ball. If he makes the wrong kind of motion it is called a balk. It counts as a ball on the batter and a player on base gets to go to the next base. A lot of people in the audience can not tell when the pitcher has committed a balk.

Will striding when pitching make the baseball move at a higher speed?

While pitching your stride doesn't actually make the ball faster. What makes the ball look faster to a batter is how close you are. If you throw an 85mph fastball from 60 feet a batter will know but if you throw the same speed from 50 feet away the batter might think its coming 90-93 mph.


How did the term strike in baseball come from?

The original game of baseball had the batter stand with his foot against a peg in the ground and the pitcher then throw the ball at the batter. If the ball struck the batter on the trunk of the body it was term a strike. One strike and you were out. This game as far as I know originated in Wales, UK. I stand to be corrected on the last point.


Can a balk be called if a pitcher stops his throw due to a batter awarded time out?

A balk can only be called when the ball is live. If a batter has been awarded time out, then play has stopped, and a balk is impossible. It's safer for the pitcher to complete the pitch, just in case the batter isn't awarded time out.
