Stumper from StumpVille asks:
If a hitter jumps in front of the ball just to be hit but the ball is going right down the middle, is he considered hit by pitch? Or is it a strike, a ball, or an out?
Any time a hitter is hit by a pitch that is in the stike zone, time should be called and a strike will be called against the batter
