I read in the original Bill James Historical Abstract that Roy Thomas once fouled off 22 pitches. The legend has it that on one occasion, Luke Appling fouled off 17 straight pitches before hitting a triple. The story goes on to say that he did it to get even with a team owner who wouldn't give him a box of baseballs to pass out to the fans.

Is foul ball counted as a strike?

It depends on how the game is being played. Most of the time, foul balls don't count as a strike; you can hit a ton of foul balls while you're up to bat and it won't matter. If you're playing a strict game of baseball, though, if you go up to bat and hit two foul balls, they count as strikes. Then, if you miss the ball or whatever, that would be your third strike. And you're out. :) Foul balls count as strikes when every the batter does not have two strikes, once a batter gets two strikes foul balls are no longer counted as strikes.

In baseball with two outs and a man on first base who is caught stealing second how many pictches can the hitter get in one at bat not counting foul balls?

Normally a batter can get as many as six pitches (3 balls, 2 strikes, then the final pitch), not counting foul balls. In this case, if a runner is caught stealing with 2 out as the count fills to 3 and 2, the batter will return with a fresh count to begin the next inning. He can then get another 6 pitches, in addition to the 5 he had in the same at bat in the previous inning, for a total of 11 pitches. Great update, I wasn't considering his return at bat in the next inning with my 5 pitch answer.

I presume you're referring to Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. As a Dodger fan for over 40 years, I most DEFINITELY remember Kirk Gibson's ONLY APPEARANCE in that Series! Anyway, the pitches went like this: foul, foul, foul, ball, foul, ball, ball (stolen base), home run. Although I can not link to it, video of the complete at bat is available on DailyMotion.
