Strike Or Hit By Pitch?
Jeff asked: The batter was swinging at a pitch, but was hit by the pitch.
How would you score this. As a strike or hit by pitch.
Rick answered: Jeff, thank you for your question.
If the batter was swinging at the pitch, and the pitch hits him, it is a strike.
Only a hit by pitch, if he doesn't swing.
Yours in baseball,
