A flyout occurs when a batter hits the ball in the air and an opposing defender catches it before it hits the ground or fence.
Certain pitchers -- generally those who pitch up in the zone frequently -- have a tendency to induce more flyouts than others. But that's a risky proposition, as fly balls can result in home runs, too.
Watch: Hunter Strickland induces a flyout.
