Baseball Batter toby jug produced by Quon-Quon of Japan circa 1980. In baseball, batting is the act of facing the opposing pitcher and trying to produce offense for one's team. A batter is a person whose turn it is to face the pitcher. The three main goals of batters are to become a baserunner, to drive runners home, or to advance runners along the bases for others to drive home. Hitting is unique because it involves rotating in the horizontal plane of movement, unlike most sports movements which occur in the vertical plane.
