Ahead In The Count

Ahead in the count in baseball is a phrase used to describe a positive situation for either the pitcher or batter in relation to the count. For example, when a batter has more strikes than balls in the count, the pitcher is ahead since he is closer to striking out the batter. If the batter has more balls than strikes in the count, the batter is ahead since he has a better chance of being walked and getting on base.
