The object Is to strike the batter out. This can be difficult to play because the pitcher needs to throw the ball at a small area called the strike zone. If the ball Is not thrown at the angle In the strike zone the ball will not be a strike It would become a ball. If the batter gets four balls he gets a free walk to first baseball. This position can put a lot of pressure on the player
