# How many innings are there in a season of baseball?

For an individual team, 162 games X 9 innings per game = 1,458. That's assuming all games last a full nine innings, which is not always the case. A game CAN be called "complete" at any point after the end of the 5th inning, provided both teams have an equal number of offensive innings, if weather conditions prohibit the continuation of play. I have no idea how often this happens. Also, if the home team is leading in the middle of the ninth inning (or the middle of the 5th-8th if weather forces a stop in play), there is no need to play the bottom half of the inning, and the game is considered complete. And since the home team has a slight advantage in a game, I would say about half of all games end this way. So, even without the 5- to 8-inning weather games, about half of all games end at 8.5 innings. For all teams combined: There are 30 teams, each of which plays 1,458 innings, but since each game involves 2 teams, you have to divide that by 2. 21,870 innings. Again, that doesn't allow for games called at 5, 6, 7, 8, or 8.5 innings. Also, sometimes one or more additional games are required at the end of the regular season to break divisional or wildcard race ties. These are not included. Nor, for that matter, are playoff games and world series games.

# What is the mercy rule in wii baseball?

# How do you compute a baseball players batting average?

Number of hits divided by the official at bats. An error or fielder's choice counts against a batting average as an at bat, but it does not count as a hit. A sacrifice or walk does not count against a batter's at bat totals. These are plate appearances which are different. So, a batter could have 140 plate appearances, 100 at bats, and 30 hits. You would divide 30 by 100, which would give you a batting average of .300.

# What is the value of a 1932 Cubs vs Yankees World Series program from a game at Wrigley Field?

A 1922 New York Giants World Series program played at The Polo Grounds is worth about \$1,500.-\$2,500. in excellent - near/mint condition. A 1922 New York Yankees World Series program played at Yankee Stadium is worth \$1,500.-\$2,500. As with all collectibles, condition is the most important factor of all providing that the item is authentic. With programs/scorecards the slightest flaws will bring the price down significantly. An exceptional mint condition scorecard could sell for more. Common flaws would be staining, foxing (yellowing), fading, creases, rips, loose pages, cracked binding, and writing on the cover. Un-scored programs will generally sell at a higher price than a scored program but sometimes it doesn't effect value. The over all condition, and how well the cover displays will.

The value on a "scored" program as opposed to a un-scored program can vary depending on the game, and collectors preference. In general I would say an un-scored program will sell at a higher price. Some collectors do not mind scored programs, or might prefer it scored. A game in note that might sell at a higher price "scored" would be Don Larsens perfect game in the World Series.

# Is a batter given a hit if with bases loaded less than 2 outs batter hits ball in the air landing safely into the outfield but the runner on first is forced out at 2nd by the right fielder?

Baseball rules provide that a runner is out when he is struck by a batted ball (provided the ball was not touched by a fielder first). All other runners return to the base they occupied at the time of the pitch. However, the batter is awarded first base and all runners that have to advance because of this advance. The Official Baseball Rules are 5.09(f) and 7.08(f).

# What are the odds of a runner on second scoring with no outs in the ninth?

I have seen answers that range from 75% to 85%, but you can't go by those kinds of odds. Odds in baseball are completely different than, say, poker or craps. With poker, you always have 52 cards in a deck and the number never changes. With craps, the dice faces never change.

In baseball, your odds are determined by the abilities of at least six (Pitcher, Catcher, Batter 1, Batter 2, Batter 3, Base Runner on second) and up to thirteen (the remaining fielders) or more (Batter 4 if one of the other batters is walked) players.

Just some factors:

Is the pitcher on his "A" game? And even if so, is he an ace or mediocre?

The batting averages of the upcoming batters.

Are any of those batters hot or cold?

If NL, Will the pitcher be batting?

What are the fielding percentages of the players behind the pitcher?

Will the pitcher intentionally walk the next batter to try and create a force-out situation?

# How to score the batter at bat when foul ball error occurs?

# Does the batter get an RBI if he bats into a fielders choice and a runner scores?

Yes. There are only a few times that a batter helps a teammate score but does not get an RBI.

Example 1: Bases loaded, 0 outs, batter grounds into double play 2nd baseman to first baseman, runner at third scores. The batter is not credited with an RBI.

Example 2: Runner on 3rd, 2 outs, batter hits a routine groundball to shortstop, but the shortstop makes an erro. The batter is not credited with an RBI because if the ball was played cleanly the run would not have scored.

# Is there a rule for hitting a bird with a batted ball?

Birds and rocks and other things like that are considered natural objects. If a bird is struck by a batted ball in fair territory, it is a live ball.

On 6/11/2009, the Cleveland Indians celebrated a walk-off win against the Kansas City Royals as Shin-Soo Choo hit a single into shallow center field amidst a flock of seagulls resting in the field. It hit one of the seagulls, knocking it down staggering to the ground. Outfielder Coco Crisp was unable to cleanly field the ball as the scattering of the gulls interfered with his perspective and the ball caromed off of one of the birds.

However, this rule is not in effect when the ball is pitched. If it hits a bird in mid-pitch, the ball is dead (and more than likely so is the bird).

An inside pitch
