By contrast, the balance of power is largely reversed in baseball. While particularly skilled batters have some ability to and direct the ball to desired locations, the pitcher's influence is much more dramatic. Pitchers induce more ground outs, fly outs, or strikeouts, depending on the style of pitch. Thus particular pitchers are known for causing batters to make certain kinds of outs, depending on their mastered pitches. Also in contrast to cricket, baseball batters must attempt to take first base on any ball put into fair territory, and failing to do so will result in an out, but the size of the strike zone more strictly limits the set of deliveries that must be swung at compared to cricket. Like cricket, baseball batters do have a defensive tactic available; many batters will often attempt to deliberately pitches that are strikes yet difficult to hit well, by hitting them into foul territory, awaiting an easier delivery later in the at-bat. Since an uncaught foul ball cannot be a third strike (unless it was a bunt attempt), this tactic allows the batter to receive more pitches.
This allows us to keep our live delivery guarantee!
In order for our live guarantee to be effective, someone must sign for the crickets when they are delivered. Second day deliveries placed by noon EST are shipped Monday-Wednesday. Overnight orders placed by noon EST ship Monday - Thursday. Orders placed after the cutoff for the weekend are shipped on Monday for Tuesday delivery. This allows us to keep our live delivery guarantee! If we boxed them up and shipped them out on Friday, they would sit in a warehouse all weekend and may not arrive live.
