The count reached one ball and one strike keep your chin up.
(This sentence is from baseball)
Here, what is the meaning of `cound' and `chin up'?
Could anyone explain it?
Re: chin up
In baseball, the count is the number of balls and strikes the current batter has. If he gets three strikes, he is out. If he gets four balls, he is walked to first base.
