Batters don't like the pitches to come too close.
When bat connects, the ball doesn't always go the right direction. But sometimes it does.
That pretty much covers all the offensive action. If you're still interested, maybe I'll post pictures of my inattentiveness -- that is, the rest of the stuff that happened.
Oh -- but one more batting photo. This one illustrates a pitch that was right over the bun. Just right.
