This is the 'count.' It is represented visually as 'number of balls-number of strikes,' B-S. It is spoken as balls, strikes. So, if there are two balls and one strike the count is written '2-1' and spoken 'two, one.' A batter is considered 'ahead in the count' if the number of balls is greater than the number of strikes as in the above example and 'behind in the count' if the number of strikes is greater. For the pitcher, this is reversed. A count is considered 'full' when the maximum number of balls and strikes have been thrown without resulting in a walk or a strikeout: 3-2.

balls the first number is balls and the second number is Strikes

Two strikes, three balls.

When an umpire calls a full count, that means the batter has 3 balls and 2 strikes. A full count (3-2) is the highest number of balls and strikes a batter can get before he is either awarded a base (on balls) or is out (on strikes).

No, the number of balls and strikes stays the same when the new pitcher comes in.

Well, they are called balls, strikes, outs, and walks.

Unlimited number of foul balls. They all count as strikes until you have 2 strikes, then they don't mean a thing...

Yes the first two foul balls are strikes unless there aree two strikes. A batter can not strike out on foul balls.

Use your left hand for the number of balls and your Right for the number of strikes while calling it out verbally. Also rotate your wrists when giving the count so there the base coaches also have a view of the count.

If the count were 2-1 that would mean 2 balls and 1 strike. It is NEVER reversed.

3 balls and two strikes. Depends on how many fowl tips as a variable. But number of day's I have no clue
