I'm starting to rethink posting this question. I didn't think about rules such as interference. There's even delay and hand-to-mouth rule that count as a ball without throwing a pitch, making the theoretical minimum to be 0. So I'll also accept 0 as the correct answer now. B-)

LOL - the correct answer as you said would be 25, but it really is a thinking question, which makes it good. There's no money on the line, so if people get upset about not having your answer...oh well. Most of the theoreticals are so far out of the realm of possibility that I don't think it matters.

Probably the question should just be voided. An interesting question, just not a good trivia question. It happens.

Here's how it can be done in 9 pitches.
1. Batter hits first pitch for a triple
2. Runner tries to steal home before the pitcher starts his windup
3. Pitcher steps off the rubber and throws the ball to the catcher (not a pitch)
4. Next batter interferes with attempted stolen base and is called out for interference and runner is sent back to 3rd.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times (to end the inning, with only 1 pitch thrown)
6. Repeat steps 2-5 for each inning.

Of course this is theoretical and would never happen in real lift.
