A complete game means the entire game. It entirely depends on how many innings are played in the game. I suppose then the answer to your question is nine, as that is the minimum number of innings in an mlb game. If that game goes into extra innings, the pitcher will have to continue to pitch until the end of that game. ---- In MLB, the game must go at least 4 1/2 innings to be considered complete if it starts raining or something else happens to cause the field to become dangerous to play on.

What is the fewest pitches thrown in a single half inning of an all-star game?

As far as I know, the record is 4 pitches, thrown by the Detroit Tigers pitcher Edwin Jackson. In the fifth inning of the 2009 All-Star game Edwin Jackson retired St Louis Cardinal Yadier Molina on one pitch, Washington Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman hit into a ground out with one strike on him, and Hanley Ramirez, from the Florida Marlins popped up the first pitch he saw, thus giving Jackson the shortest pitching appearance in All-Star game history.

How do you find your obp in baseball?

Add up your hits, walks, and hit by pitches and divide by the number you get when adding up your at bats, walks, hit by pitches, and sacrifice flies. As an example, we'll use Albert Pujols 2011 stats ... Hits - 173 Walks - 61 Hit by Pitches - 4 At Bats - 579 Sacrifice Flies - 7 The OBP would be calculated as ... (173 + 61 + 4) divided by (579 + 61 + 4 + 7) which equals ... 238 divided by 651 which equals .03655 which would round to .0366. Albert's OBP for the 2011 season was .0366.
