To tip a pitch means you are doing something different to tip off the fact the pitcher is about to throw a particular pitch. A subtle change in delivery such as arm angle or speed of delivery. It could be in the way the pitcher grips or re-grips the ball in his glove. A pitcher wants to prepare for each pitch exactly the same way so he/she does not give away what pitch is coming.

It is the last game of a series, when both baseball teams split the previous games. For example, if the series is tied 1-1, the third game would be the rubber game.

There is no definitive answer since pitches per at bat has not been a consistently kept statistic, however according to the original Baseball Abstract by Bill James, Roy Thomas fouled off 22 pitches & eventually worked the count to 3 balls. This would mean he saw at least 26 pitches (22 strikes + 3 balls + 1 ball in play)

Well, I think they called baseball, because for base.... their are bases in the game, and for ....ball, their playing with a ball.

Just imagine the stage as if it was tipping forward. Upstage is at the back of the stage, and downstage is at the front of the stage.
