 Bambooweb: Baseball
Once a batter gets a hit, a base on balls, or otherwise reaches base, he is said to be "on" that base until he attempts to advance to the next base, he is put out, or the half-inning ends.
Because pitching is a specialized skill, many pitchers are not good hitters, so it is common to substitute for a pitcher when he is due to bat.
Some hitters hit better with runners in scoring position, and the manager of the fielding team might simply elect to intentionally walk him and face a worse hitter.

 Sabermetrics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, a player with a high batting average one year may have been very valuable to his team, but batting average is known to be a volatile stat and relying on it to remain high in future years is often not a good principle.
A sabermetrician might argue that a high walk rate is a better indication that a player will retain his value in the future.
Some sabermetric measurements have entered mainstream baseball usage, especially OPS (on-base plus slugging) and, to a lesser extent, WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched).

Common pitches include a fastball, which is the ball thrown at a maximum velocity; a curveball, which is made to curve by rotation imparted by the pitcher; and a change-up, which is a slower version of a fastball.
The pitches arrive quickly, so the decision to swing must be made in less than a second, based on whether or not the ball is hittable and in the strike zone, a region defined by the area directly above home plate and between the batter's knees and underarms.
If a pitch touches the batter, the umpire can declare a hit by pitch (abbreviated HBP) and the batter is awarded first base, unless the umpire determines that the ball was in the strike zone when it hit the batter, or that the batter did not attempt to avoid being hit.

Pitchers with at least 20 innings in 2002 qualify for evaluation, and each pitcher is classified as either a starter or a reliever according to his primary role in 2002.
His style of pitching demands a lot of help from his team's defense, and Oriole fielders did not hold up their end of the bargain, allowing a.326 batting average on balls in play.
His strikeout and walk rates were pedestrian, but he did an excellent job of keeping the ball in the park by allowing only 0.60 HR/9 IP, which trailed only Groom's 0.58 on the staff, and this helped him limit batters to a puny.362 slugging percentage.

Batista credits fine-tuning his split-finger fastball, pitching with greater confidence and playing with a better team behind him as the keys to his turnaround.

His slider is a decent swing-and-miss pitch when he doesn't hang it, but batters have learned not to swing at it, and Julio doesn't get ahead in the count often enough for it to be an effective weapon.
