    What stroke can he do?

    In my workbook, this "stroke" is interpreted as "hitting method in baseball", but can it also mean ways of swimming like back stroke or breast stroke?
    It lack some context.

    Yes, as a look in most dictionaries would have confirmed.

    I have never heard anyone refer to a baseball "stroke." Batters swing. Golfers have a swing, but count strokes.
