What is the baseball rule when a batter is injured on a strike one foul ball and cannot continue his turn at bat?
Is it a ball or a strike if a batter holds the bat over the plate and the ball is outside the strike zone?
If the batter has the bat out over the plate when the ball hits them it is a strike... As long as the batter makes an attempt at the ball, like pushing or moving the bat to the ball then yes it would be a strike if they were hit.If the batter simply has the bat over the plate and is hit by the pitch out of the strike zone then its not a strike.
When bunting in Little League does the batter have to remove the bat from the strike zone or is this considered offered at or attempt?
In little league like the majors when bunting and you miss the pitch it is a strike. It depends on the umpire; if he thinks the batter offered at the pitch, he will call the strike. Simply holding the bat in the strike zone is not offering at the pitch unless the umpire decides that. It is a safer bet to teach your batters to pull the bat out of the strike zone if they…
If a hitter motions for a bunt and doesnt make contact and the pitch is a ball is the batter charged with a strike or ball?
Yes, whether the batter attempted to contact the ball or not, if the ball strikes the bat and is fouled off, it is a strike, unless there are already two strikes, of course. If, on the other hand, the ball strikes the bat and goes into fair territory, the ball is in play, and the runner can attempt to reach first.
If a better puts out his bat for a bunt and does not pull it back, the pitch counts as a strike (as long as the ball does not hit the bat of course). It does not matter if the ball is in the strike zone or is 10 ft outside of it. Given that it is a strike, the runners do not advance, although they can attempt to steal.
Yes. The act of squaring around to bunt the ball is considered identical to swinging. So in this case it would be considered identical to swinging and missing the ball. The batter does not have to pull the bat back.Just simply holding the bat over the plate is not a strike.The batter must make an attempt at the ball, squaring to bunt and holding the bat completly still is not an attempt at the ball…
When selecting a softball bat a few things need to be considered; age, height, and weight of the person who will be using the bat, type of material the bat is made from, the grip, the drop; length-to-weight ratio, and if a youth bat or adult bat is needed. Easton has many choices in beginner's softball bats including youth and adult bats.
Each time the batter hits the ball, either into fair or foul ground, no matter how much out of the strike zone the pitch may have been, the pitcher is "credited" with having thrown a strike in the "strike-ball" ratio. Since the latter has no effect on the score of the game or in any official statistics, this is not a problem.
