A batter who has 2 strikes and 3 balls is said to have full count?

Yes, 3 Balls and 2 strikes is considered a "full count" meaning that the next strike you receive you are out (strike out) or the next ball you get you receive a walk (or 'bases on balls').Foul balls don't count towards your strike total when you have 2 strikes, if you foul a ball off with 2 strikes you have to "do it again" and your count remains the same.

It's nothing special, except for an "even count." It's called "even" when the balls and strikes are the same number. You may be asking what it's called when there are 3 balls and 2 strikes, which would then be called a "full count." The very next pitch has different nicknames, such as the "payoff pitch" or the "money pitch" because, unless it's a foul ball, the next pitch is going to benefit one of the teams in some way.

What are the number of called balls and strikes on a hitter?

This is the 'count.' It is represented visually as 'number of balls-number of strikes,' B-S. It is spoken as balls, strikes. So, if there are two balls and one strike the count is written '2-1' and spoken 'two, one.' A batter is considered 'ahead in the count' if the number of balls is greater than the number of strikes as in the above example and 'behind in the count' if the number of strikes is greater. For the pitcher, this is reversed. A count is considered 'full' when the maximum number of balls and strikes have been thrown without resulting in a walk or a strikeout: 3-2.

How many pitches can a batter see in one at bat?

Here are some answers from the community:Well, if he keeps hitting foul balls he could theoretically stay there forever. Doesn't usually happen though. Three strikes and he's out. Four balls and he walks. Theoretically, unlimited. If the batter keeps hitting 3rd strike foul balls, he could stay there indefinitely.11 pitches. Two outs in the inning, runner on base, 3-2 count, and runner gets caught stealing for the 3rd out. The same batter leads off the next with the same at bat receiving a 3-2 count for a total of 10 pitches, the 11th pitch is a hit, walk, or strike out.

A batter can have a full count of 2 and 3 and then get walked with ball nuber 4, so 6 pitches. However, consider the circumstance of a pitcher facing a batter with two outs and a runner on base. If the pitcher picks off a runner with the count full, the inning ends, and the same batter is up in the next inning with an empty count. Statistically, it is the same at bat, so the maximum number of pitches is in fact 11. 2 strikes and 3 balls in one inning, and either 3 strikes and 3 balls or 2 strikes and 4 balls to lead off the next inning.
