The action of a pitcher striking out a hitter, can remind us of a battle that takes place in a war, where a fighter dominates an adversary in the battlefield.

Baseball great Satchel Paige was known to put a performance when he would call in his outfielders, striking out the side.

All-Time Record:

The all-time record for most strikeouts in a single game of baseball belongs to Ron Necciai (1952), who retired 27 hitters in a nine-inning game.  Necciai pitched for Bristol in Class D ball. He won just one game in the Major Leagues and retired after a rotator cuff injury to his marvelous arm.
