Can a batter be substituted in the middle of a count?

User Avatar
Yes he can. He is credited with an AB (at bat), rather than on OAB (Official at bat), for statistical purposes, since he did not begin the at bat with a 0/0 count. count. Clarification: I just wanted to add on the answer above: 1. If a player comes in to pinch hit with any two-strike count and strikes out, this is the only scenario in which the original batter is charged with the strikeout and the AB, the pinch hitter is charged with neither an AB or the K

Can an uninjured pitcher be substituted in the middle of a count?

User Avatar
Yes, pitchers and hitters can be substituted at any time. Hitters can be substituted at any time, but unless he is injured, a pitcher must pitch to at least one batter before he can be taken out. A pitcher can be removed in the middle of an at-bat, however, if he had pitched to at least one hitter previously.

What is the value of a count basie orchestra record made in 1958?

User Avatar
Valuing vinyl records can be tricky. Some factors to consider in a valuation are: • Physical condition of the vinyl record (Are the grooves clean and sharp? or worn and dull?) • Is the record a "first release" or a "re-release" (Is the song on the record original to 1958? Or is it a re-issue of a popular Basie song that was recorded earlier?) • Is the artist well-known? (Count Basie's Orchestra had millions of records made from the 1930s to the 1980s, so it isn't too rare to find one.) • What part of the world do you live in? (Records like this in the US are fairly easy to find, a little less so in the UK and Europe. Harder to find in Eastern Europe and Asia.) On average, a good-condition Count Basie Orchestra record from 1958 might be worth anywhere from $10 - $25. Shops that specialize in vintage records would likely buy it from you at around $2 - $5 (with an eye to reselling at a mark-up) Your best bet is to write down the song title (on both the "A" and "B" sides) and any numbers you find with the record label. There are value catalogs available at larger bookstores, or at your local library, that can tell you a lot about the possible value of any record you have.

What is the value of Count Basie Orchestra Neal Hefti arrangements 1958 Roulette records?

User Avatar
The short answer is around $20-80 for original LPs in mint condition or somewhat less for CD re-issues in mint condition. The main two studio albums are "The Atomic Mr. Basie" and "Basie Plays Hefti." For real completist collectors, however the longer answer is around $400-$600 for the Mosaic Boxed Set of Complete Count Basie Roulette Studio recordings (10 CD's) and $200-$350 for the Mosaic Boxed Set of Complete Count Basie Roulette Live Recordings (8 CD's). Why so expensive? Both boxed sets were issued in limited pressings - 3500 for the studio set and 7500 for the live set. In addition, Mosaic re-masters the CD's for superior sound to the standard CD issues and provides archival quality documentation, include complete notes, essays, discography, chronologies, and photos. Of course, the complete sets include multiple versions of all the Hefti-Basie collaborations as well as the other great arrangers of the New Testament Band, such as Frank Foster, Benny Carter, Thad Jones, and Ernie Wilkins among others. For some earlier Hefti-Basie collaborations you need the Columbia Boxed Set (4 CD's) and the Mosaic Verve Studio Set (8 CD's). The latter is particularly valuable for the superb Quincy Jones arrangements for Count Basie, as well as some outstanding vocals by Jimmy Rushing and Joe Williams.

How did count Basie get his name?

User Avatar
My Grandfather used to play drums with Basie, way early before Basie was Count Basie. My Grandfather's story was: Basie was a bit jealous when Ellington changed his name to Duke Ellington. Basie said "well if he is going to be a Duke, then I'm going to be a Count. That was my grandfathers story. When my Grandfather retired and sold his company, there was a party for him. Count Basie and his Orchestra played at that party. Basie first played a private set for only my Grandpa. The rest of us partied in another room at the Country Club. After the set, everyone attending the party was let in to the Ballroom for the next sets. I was a the party. It was in 1979. I was a senior in high school.

Can you create Counter Strike 1.6 public server for free?

User Avatar
Yes you can. You can create the server for free but if you want to join it you have to buy the Game CS1.6 . Any one who is having this original game can join this server 1. Download this HLDS tool according to ur OS Windows http://storefront.steampowered.com/download/hldsupdatetool.exe Linux http://storefront.steampowered.com/download/hldsupdatetool.bin 2. Install the update tool in x:\HLServer. 3. Open a terminal (Start>Run>cmd). 4. Use directory traversal and go to your HLServer directory (CD \HLServer). 5. Type in "HldsUpdateTool" (or just "h" then cycle tab through the files until you got the exe) or ./steam for Linux users then a space then enter -command update -game . Replace with the game you want to host, be it "cstrike", "dmc", "dod", "ricochet", "tfc", "valve", "Counter-Strike Source", or "hl2mp". Enter -dir x:\hlserver afterwards and then press enter and let it rest. A correct example would be: HldsUpdateTool -command update -game cstrike -dir c:\hlserver 6. If it worked so far, it should now be installing the files needed to run the server. 7. It downloads around 320MB. 8. After the installation is finished your Half life dedicated server is ready to run. Now go to the installed folder x:\hlserver . Ok what you have to do is just execute hlds.exe. Select the game as Counter-Strike. Give name to your server. Select the map. Select the network as Internet if u want it to be online or Lan. Set the max no of players according to your Internet connection. Set the UDP port as 27016. RCON password anything don't leave blank. Check Secure(valve Anti-cheat). Click start server. A window opens, go to console and type "sv_lan 0" without quotes. Now your server is ready. If it didnt work Unblock hlds.exe from firewall and add an exception to UDP port 27016. Sometimes the ports in modem or router is blocked u have to unblock it i.e. portforwarding. To learn how to do that check this link http://www.portforward.com/.. After portforwarding your server will work.. To make it pirated i.e. to let all the non steam players to play in your server apply the nosteam patch .. http://www.tutorialecstrike.com/patch_server.HTML Then start the server.
