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.
in 1946 Sam Hernandaze hit a total of 25 foul balls in one at bat
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.
Unlimited number of foul balls. They all count as strikes until you have 2 strikes, then they don't mean a thing...
At a High school softball game and the batter hit 21 foul balls in 26 pitches. She then walked.
In an at bat a batter as to get 4 balls before they walk. A walk meaning they get to be on first base. In a at bat where there are no foul balls they batter gets three strikes before they are out. If there are foul balls they count as pitches, but a batter can not strike out on a foul ball that is not caught.
I was a kid in during the Big Red Machine years. I used to watch all the games I could. Tony Perez, 1st baseman, was said to have had the most foul balls in one at bat. At that time 76-77, he had 26. Not sure if that stil stands but if anyone knows of more please contribute.
wield the bat with all your unholy rage and set it against the most foul demon, the computor.
to retrieve the bats after a hitter hits, and sometimes chase foul balls
In baseball, the bat is used to hit the balls thrown by the pitcher.
because it likes dick with balls
Be at bat and take 4 balls (opp. Of a strike)
Basikly sky balls i love baseball so there ground balls dont go directley at ur bat so sky balls
When playing baseball, you want to hit the ball with the bat right over the plate. Hitting it in front or behind the plate results in a foul ball.
It depends on the bat, but for an aluminum bat like the Anderson Techzilla, if you hit rubber balls in the batting cage, the bat will dent soon enough.
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.
Probably not since tennis balls are soft.
0, but if the pitcher throws you 4 balls, then you would have a walk and go to first base.
A bat (as in baseball)
The sweet spot of a baseball bat is the point on the bat where the most power will be generated. The sweet spot will change depending on the material and bat
if the bat is in fair terriotory then yes.
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.
