Hitting(Okay,British: pinch hitter)baseballInBatting orderCame aroundbatteron behalfAt-batEnter and hitplayerThat thing.English abbreviationPH.

Origin / Overview

When baseball began in the 19th century, replacement was not allowed unless the starting player was unable to play due to injury or illness during the match.This is"Pinch hitterIs the reason why it is called[1]..After that, after a period of time when a limited number of people such as 1 or 1 people per game or a limited rule such as only during innings was put into operation1891Has a rule that allows unlimited player changes during a match[2]..This has made it possible to strategically change players as one of the manager's strategies in baseball.

The attackerBall deadAt any time, the batter can be replaced by a reserve player who has not yet played in the match.[3]..The substitute player at this timeHittingThat is.In addition, it should be notedNominated batterOnly if the starting pitcher is replaced or the designated hitter completes one turn at bat[4]..Also, the pitcher cannot be replaced until one or more batters are out or the first base is allowed (at least one at bat is completed) or the inning is completed.[5]Therefore, even when the pitcher stands at bat in the top of the first inning, he cannot make a pinch hitter.

Pinch hitter will take over the batting order, ball count, and defensive position of the replaced player and participate in the game, but when defensive, the defensive position may be changed or replaced by another player.[Note 1]..Also, a player who has been replaced by a pinch hitter will withdraw from the match and will not be able to participate in that match thereafter.However, if the pitcher changes,Rescue pitcherIs obliged to pitch until the batter / pinch hitter at that time is out or reaches first base and the batting is completed or the offense and defense change.[6]Pinch hitter, on the other hand, is not obliged to complete the blow.Therefore, for example, if a batter is given a pinch hitter and the defensive side who sees this changes the pitcher, the attacking side who sees this change of pitcher may give a pinch hitter for a hitter that has not yet been thrown. it can.However, the defensive side is not allowed to immediately replace the substitute pitcher with another pitcher in response to the pinch hitter being issued.

Record treatment

If the batter is replaced in the middle of the turn at bat (a pinch hitter is issued), the batter will have a record when the turn at bat is completed.However, as an exception, 2strikeThe batter who participated as a pinch hitter after being taken is taken a strikeStrikeoutIf you do, the batter who took the second strike will be struck out.[7]

Pinch hitter

The type of pinch hitter to be appointed depends on the game situation.outThe number ofscorenumber,inningThe number and whether the pitcher is left or right are important deciding factors.Before using a pinch hitter, it is necessary to consider who will fill the defensive hole after the current batter has retired.In many cases, a left-handed batter is appointed for a right-handed pitcher and a right-handed batter is appointed for a left-handed pitcher.The best pinch hitters on the team often save for the second half of the game[8].

Opportunity at the end of the game

The match rushed into the final stage with a close match,runnerThe scene where I got the opportunity to tie, reverse, or take a decisive additional point.Since the batting result in such a situation is directly linked to the victory or defeat of the team, a batter who has a high batting average in the scoring position and is trusted in the team is appointed.A player who has difficulty in defense or has retired from regular due to old age but has a high batting average (it is said to "get results" and "work")Pinch hitter trump cardWill enter the bench.After hitting a hit and hitting the base, heSubstituteOften replaces the player.

The most in the team to make sure the runners advance in situations where they really want one pointBuntA good player may play as a substitute for a sacrifice bunt (so-called "pinch bunter").This is a strong miraculous nature because the purpose is to advance the runner with a bunt from the beginning.Squeeze playIt is difficult to be appointed in the scene where you set up.This is because if a player who is good at bunting comes out as a substitute in a situation where squeeze is possible, the defensive side will detect that squeeze will be performed most of the time.

Compatibility between dominant arm and turn at bat

Since the source of the ball is easy to see, the right-handed batter is advantageous for left-handed pitchers, and the left-handed batter is advantageous for right-handed pitchers.Taking advantage of this, players with different left and right at-bats may be put out, and a pinch hitter may be appointed to gain an advantage in the dominant arm.For teams that do not have an absolute trump card, a pinch hitter will be given in consideration of this even at the end of the game.In addition, it may be appointed in consideration of compatibility with pitchers.When a left-handed batter is sent to a pinch hitter in the scene of a right-handed pitcher, the opponent may change the pitcher to the left, and at that time, a "pinch hitter" that appoints a right-handed batter is also occasionally seen.

Pitcher's turn at bat

Nominated batterIn the case of a game without a system, it is generally difficult to expect a hit in the turn at bat of a pitcher whose batting power is inferior to that of a fielder.Therefore, if a runner is placed after the middle of the game and the pitcher's turn at bat is scheduled to be dismissed, a pinch hitter is often issued.This pinch hitter is judged in consideration of the number of pitchers thrown, and the turn at bat has an important influence on the timing of pitcher change.

To continue recording

It may be used as a means to continue the continuous participation record.In order to continue the record of consecutive appearances, it is necessary to complete one turn at bat or to defend from the beginning to the end of one inning.
