Hit by pitch
Anonymous asked: If a pitch hits your hands while holding the bat, is it a walk or a strike?
Rick answered: When a pitched ball hits any part of the batter's body, the call is a dead ball.
If the batter swings at the pitch, it is a dead ball and a strike, the at bat continues.
If he doesn't swing, it would be a dead ball, batter goes to first base.
