In general, for "closing out the game" or the last inning of a close game that you are leading. If the closer does so successfully, he will be awareded a "save". Some of the most high profile relief pitchers have specialized in this high stress, high risk position. Today, Bobby Jenks of the White Sox, Mariano Rivera of the Yankees are two good examples.

Yes. The baseball is almost standard in size the world over. The playing field isn't so standard. I believe the Japanese pitcher's mound is shorter and closer to home plate. Actually the baseball sizes are slightly different in Japan and USA professional baseball. I played baseball there and in the states and was informed that Japanese baseballs are slightly lighter, but almost not noticable.
