There are many pitchers who have made the fewest pitches in one inning. Three. Each batter swung at the first pitch and it resulted in an out. It still happens today, although it's usually four to six.

What happens if a pitcher pitches the wrong type of baseball?

Then the home plate umpire made a silly mistake. He is the man who inspects each baseball before he allows them to be used. But, if, for some reason, the pitcher does sneak a different ball into the field, he will be thrown out of the game for cheating.

Which baseball pitcher had the fewest pitches ever in a game?

I'm sure it's 1, but I can't think of any particular instances of that. One strange instance that sticks out in my mind was during the 2011 World Series, when Tony LaRussa made a pitching change and called Lance Lynn in from the bullpen. Lynn faced one batter, intentionally walked him, and then another pitching change was made. If you're talking about complete games by starting pitchers, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves only needed 58 pitches to go all 9 innings on August 10, 1944.

If a coach completely removes a pitcher from the game and he forgets that he removed him and the pitcher pitches is the pitcher illegal and should a forfeit be called?

Rule 3.05(c) states: If an improper substitution is made for the pitcher, the umpire shall direct the proper pitcher to return to the game until the provisions of this rule are fulfilled. If the improper pitcher is permitted to pitch, any play that results is legal. The improper pitcher becomes the proper pitcher as soon as he makes his first pitch to the batter, or as soon as any runner is put out. Rule 3.05(c) Comment states: If a manager attempts to remove a pitcher in violation of Rule 3.05 (c) the umpire shall notify the manager of the offending club that it cannot be done. If, by chance, the umpire-in-chief has, through oversight, announced the incoming improper pitcher, he should still correct the situation before the improper pitcher pitches. Once the improper pitcher delivers a pitch he becomes the proper pitcher.

What is considered a complete game in baseball?

A complete game is different from an official game. A pitcher can throw a complete game if he or she pitches every inning until the final out is made. In the major leagues it is usually 9 innings. An official game also has a definition. After the 5th inning, in the major leagues, it is an official game. If the home team is winning by the middle of the 5th inning and the game is called due to weather or some other reason there is no need to play the bottom of the 5th for the game to be considered an official game. Whomever is in the lead at the end of the 5th inning or later is considered the winner.
