REMIINDER:  AA is the beginning level of real baseball.  3 strikes is an out and 4 balls is a walk; 3 outs and the inning is over.  While it is more enjoyable to watch runners running and batters batting, the reality is that at some point along the path of learning baseball, players must begin to learn the art of pitching and hitting.
