Why is the pitcher considered the most important defensive player on a baseball team?

Because where and how the pitcher throws the ball has a lot to do with where and how hard the batter hits it. If the pitcher is throwing the ball on the corners of the plate, moving the ball up and down in the strike zone, and changing speeds generally the batter will not hit as hard as the pitcher who throws the ball, no matter how hard, over the middle of the plate. The defense will usually set its positions based on how a pitcher is going to pitch to a batter. If the defense plays a batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws a pitch on the outside corner at the knees, the batter is usually going to hit that ball to the opposite field, maybe sometimes up the middle. If the defense is playing the batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws the ball belt high over the inside half of the plate, chances are the batter will hit the ball very hard and pull the ball away from where the defense is setup.

What is the ruling if an offensive player kicks a batted ball in play in baseball?

If the batter intentionally or accidently kicks the ball, he is considered out. Any contact after a batted ball by the batter is an out. See the rules, 6 (batter), and 7 (runner) in the link below. Keep in mind that the offensive players on the field are the batter and runners. If the ball makes incidental contact with an offensive player (as opposed to intentional on the part of a defensive player) before the ball contacts a defensive player, the offensive player is out. One exception to this is when a ball contacts a batter in the batter's box, provided the batter is not swinging on a third strike, in which case he is out. Ball contact with the batter mean he takes first, with the one exception of course.


What is baseball?

Baseball is a game where a pitcher throws the ball over the home plate and between the batter's knees to their lower chest. If the ball is not of those rules, the pitch is counted as a ball. If the batter swings at a ball, it is counted as a strike. 4 balls and it is a walk to 1st base and 3 strikes is a strikeout and the player is out as a batter. 3 outs and it is a changeover. When the batter hits it and it goes out of the field, it is counted as a Home run where the batter runs back to home base at any speed. If the ball bounces and then goes over, it is called a ground out and the batter is out. The ball is made of compressed cork and is really hard. If the pitcher throws the ball and it hits the batter, it is a balk which is just advancing to 1st base. If someone is on 1st base and it is a walk, the 1st base moves to 2nd base and so on. The catcher at the back catches the strikes and balls. it is their responsibility to keep the umpire safe and the ball from going into the backstop. The bat is usually made of maple wood.


If a pitcher throws the ball to the batter and he doesn't hit it?

If the batter attempts to hit the ball and misses, it is a strike. If the batter does not attempt to hit the ball and the ball enters the strike zone, it is a strike.
