Sacrifice[modifier | modifier le code]
Sometimes it is better to be withdrawn and not achieve the goals, for example by dropping a amortized-victim which allows one or more runners move on to the next goal, or a offer-ball makes one count point despite an outlet.
Right-handed, left-handed and ambidextrous[modifier | modifier le code]
Most of launchers is right-handed and statistically hitters left-handed has a better stroke average against right-handers. This is the angle of entry of the ball in front of a jug,,. A high percentage of hitters are left-handed, even if they throw with their right hand. There are also many right-handed hitters because most hitters are naturally right-handed. It’s even hitters ambidextrous. Because the right-handed hitter has better luck against a left-hander, and the left-handed hitter has better luck against right-handed hitters, players hitting it from both sides, depending on the pitcher. You have to be relatively skilled on both sides, otherwise the player would be more successful with a one-sided strike. When an ambidextrous hitter initiates a batting presence on a particular side of the home plate (as a right-handed or left-handed hitter), he cannot switch sides under this bar, even if the opposing team decides to switch pitchers in the middle of the ball. the road.
The order of battle[modifier | modifier le code]
Each team must present a list of their 9 hitters before the start of the match. Each player plays a position: receiver, first goal, other goals, third goal, shortstop and left, center and right voltigeurs. The ninth position may be musty or designated hitter, according to the league rules. The first hitters (positions No. 1 and No. 2) are often the fastest runners, with a high number of stolen bases. The next hitters are the more powerful ones, which hit well batting average while hitting a high number of doubles and home runs. The last hitters are the weakest hitters and are instead chosen for their defensive quality. IN National League of Major League Baseball, the ninth batter is often musty which often has a very low average, below 0.200. Sandy Koufax who has played his entire career with Los Angeles Dodgers and was elected at baseball hall of fame had a career average of 0.097 (75 hits in 776 batting appearances).
The batter takes its place in the batter of the batter, bounded by lines on the path that frame the home plate on both sides. A left-handed hitler positions himself to the right of the home plate, and a right-hander hits to the left of it, facing the pitcher. Inside this box, the batter can be near or far from the home plate. He is also free to bend over it or not, depending on what his favorite position is. However, getting too close, or leaning too much over the home plate, exposes the player to being “pushed back” by a shot from the pitcher, which can explicitly throw close to him to force him to a more back position. If the percussionist is hit by a throw that has not touched the ground beforehand, we are talking about batter hit and he gets granted first goal.
On either side of the pitch, in offside areas and generally close to shelters for players from both teams, there is waiting circles. This is the place for the batter that will follow whoever makes his presence on the bat. He practices there, but does not disturb the game, and if the ball is hit in his direction, he can not disturb the game.
