A pitcher must pitch to one batter before he can be relieved. The only exception to this would be if the pitcher suffered an injury during warmups or while pitching to the first batter he faced. In that case, should the umpire deem the injury serious enough to warrent immediate medical attention, a new pitcher may be brought in.

How many trips to the mound may a manager make before the pitcher has to come out?

The manager may only visit the pitcher one time each inning and have that pitcher remain in the game. The manager cannot visit the pitcher more than once during the same at-bat. If the manager visits the pitcher twice in one inning, a new pitcher must be brought in. If the manager visits the pitcher twice in the same at-bat, the pitcher must pitch to the batter, and then a new pitcher must be brought in.


Which pitcher is charged with the visit to the mound when pitchers are changed the original pitcher or the new pitcher?

The easy answer is the player who was last designated as the pitcher when the timeout was granted. However, time outs are really charged to the coaching staff, not any pitcher. In Major League Baseball, the pitcher (whoever he his) must be removed when a manager or coach makes a 2nd visit to the mound during any inning, other than for injury (umpires' discretion). Under High School Federation rules, the coach is allowed 3 "free" defensive timeouts during a 7-inning game. He may or may not change the pitcher -- it has no effect on the time-out total. Upon a 4th, and any subsequent, defensive timeout, the pitcher currently in the game must be replaced. In extra innings, the MLB rule is used. Other leagues can alter this rule as they wish.

Does a pitcher have to be taken out of the game if he walks to many players?

No, a pitcher doesn't have to be taken out of the game no matter how many batters he walks. The manager will probably take him out if he walks a ton of hitters but, the only time a pitcher has to be taken out is when he hits a batter and the ump thinks he did it on purpose so, he ejects him.


How many pitchers are on a baseball team?

1 at a time up to 25 (MLB). There is no distinction in the rulebook between a pitcher and a position player when they are not in the game. A pitcher can play in the field and a position player can pitch. The only person legally considered a pitcher is the guy on the mound. As an example, on 4/30/09, Red Sox RF Jonathan Van Every relieved Javier Lopez and Lopez took over in right field. For 2/3 of an inning, Van Every was a pitcher and Lopez was a position player. A typical MLB team during the regular season carries five starters and seven relievers, but the number can and does vary depending on injuries and the team's needs on a given day.


Can you switch a left handed picher for right handed pitcher in middle of an at bat?

Yes although I've never seen it happen before because that pitcher would probably have to have and keep both arms loose as well as be really effective and accurate with both. But there are no rules preventing a pitcher from switching which hand he throws the pitch during any time during a game even the same at bat (it would be nice if someone perfected it, they would prolly be able to push their pitch count to the 200's which is pretty much a guaranteed full game every time out).
