A batter going the other way means that in the case of a right handed hitter, he will hit the Baseball to right field and in the event of a left handed hitter, he will hit a pitched baseball to left field which is going the other way in baseball terms.

What does the term went around mean in baseball?

"Went around" means swung in baseball jargon. When a batter tries to check (stop) his swing, the umpire must determine whether he succeeded in stopping his swing, or whether he "went around" (that is, swung the bat far enough that it's considered a swing). The home plate umpire will often appeal this call to the first base umpire for a right handed hitter, or to the third base umpire for a left handed hitter.

Is a squeeze bunt a hit?

It would depend on the situation: - If the runners are all safe and the out went to 1st and the batter was out, then it would be a Sac Bunt - If the play went to any other base/home (no matter if they are safe or out) then it would be a Fielders Choice - If on the bunt, it is determined that the batter would have been safe at 1st even if the play would have went directly to 1st, then it would be a hit

What is the definition of appeal in the softball terminolo0gy?

In Softball, just like Baseball, the home-plate umpire is the highest umpire and makes most of the final decisions. A good example of an appeal would be: Pitcher pitches a ball out of the strike zone. The batter checks their swing and the home plate umpire calls a ball. The catcher thinks the batter may have went around with the bat, so the catcher then appeals the call by asking either the umpire on 1st or 3rd (depending on whether the batter is left- or right-handed) for their judgment, since they are able to see clearly whether the batter went around or not. Although the Home Plate Umpire made the call, the other umpire now has the ability to overrule his call if it, indeed, was a strike. If the call is not appealed, the other umpire is not allowed to overrule the call, even if it is wrong.
