Fewest Pitches Thrown in an InningSix. If the pitchers for the home & visiting teams can induce a ground-out on the 1st pitch to each of the 1st three batters he faces.

I believe it to be 3 (three) if it occurs in the ninth inning for the home team pitcher whose team has a lead, then the inning is complete without the home team having to pitch. Also a putout of any type would suffice, not just a ground-out. Other outs may qualify too, such as batting out of order, however it does not reduce the pitch count. The out of order batter must a have a minimum of 1 pitch.

I don't know what the ACTUAL fewest number of pitches is, but the fewest POSSIBLE is 27, one for each batter.

There are many pitchers who have made the fewest pitches in one inning. Three. Each batter swung at the first pitch and it resulted in an out. It still happens today, although it's usually four to six.

Pitch counts are spotty at best prior to the 1990s, but the record as far as we know is 74, by the Rockies' Aaron Cook on 7/25/07

There are no set number of pitches in each inning. The absolute shortest number of pitches that could be pitched in one inning is 6, with 3 outs per half-inning, assuming each batter swung at the first pitch resulting in an out. I don't know the most pitches that have been thrown in one inning. I have watched games where a pitcher (or multiple pitchers) have thrown forty or more pitches in one half-inning alone. Until 3 outs have been recorded, a pitcher will continue pitching to batters. If a batter steps into the batters box with an illegal bat, he is immediately called out. If three batters on each team did this, you could have zero pitches thrown in an inning.

In the history of Baseball, as of the 2012 Major League Baseball (MLB) season, 21 perfect games ("27 up, 27 down") have been thrown - 19 of which have been thrown in the Modern Era. Of these 21 perfect games thrown, none has been pitched with only 27 pitches being thrown. On record, the fewest pitches thrown in a perfect game was 74 pitches thrown by Addie Joss of the Cleveland Naps against the Chicago White Sox on October 2, 1908.

On many occasions, a relief pitcher has come into the game, then been substituted without ever throwing even one pitch, so the answer to the question as worded is 0. The fewest pitches in a Major League game by a pitcher who pitched a complete game is 44, accomplished by Charlie Barrett.

In 1944, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only FIFTY-EIGHT pitches during a nine inning complete game. Barrett's Braves shutout the Reds 2 - 0 and the game set major league records for least number of pitches known to have been thrown by a single pitcher in a complete game and shortest game played at night.

Including the 2008 season, there have been 48 Presidential 1st pitches thrown out.

5 5 is incorrect 3-2 count is 5 pitches then a 3rd strike would make the total number possible 6 The correct answer is 11. 3-1 count, man is on first, and 2 outs. Next pitch is a strike for a 3-2 count but the runner on first attempts to steal, but is thrown out for out number 3. Same batter comes up to the plate the next inning and is dealt with a 3-2 count then walks or strikes out on the next pitch. The inning before the batter was thrown 5 pitches and the next inning the batter was thrown 6 pitches for a total of 11. The previous inning at bat and the at bat the following inning counts as the same at bat.

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.

Fewest Number of PitchesThe answer is 81. If the pitcher was to throw a no hitter and strike everyone out. Each person has three strikes. There are three outs alloted for an inning. Nine pitches thrown in an inning times the nine innings equals 81. Edit: First, You did not answer the question, as you are referring to a hypothetical situation. The question asked for the name of the player who achieved a no-hitter in the least amount of pitches. Secondly, although I do not know the answer, your hypothetical situation is still wrong. A pitcher could achieve a no-hitter in 27 pitches. If the opposing team's batters swung on every pitch and grounded or flew out, that would be 3 pitches (outs) an inning times nine innings for a total of 27.Edit #2: It could be as few as 24 if the home team was ahead in the middle of the ninth. --JorgeNon-hypothetical answer: The record is 58 pitches, by Red Barrett of the Boston Braves in a nine-inning 2-0 complete game against the Cincinnati Reds on August 10, 1944. This is also the shortest recorded pro baseball game. -ThanksForAsking
