The Objectives we focusing in this project is to decide the best strategy for each pitcher and hitter. The objective of this project is help to the team and player achieve better pitch and bat results by finding the best strategy. In this project, we will be modelling the situation by two-player games with finite games and the strategies for batter is swing and no-swing and the strategies for pitcher is pitch a goodball or badball. In this project the payoff of each player is not same and we classify the player into weak and strong and consider the strong player can have high payoff when meet a weak player. After determine each player’s payoff, we simulate the game in python by using the loop function. The purpose of the simulation is let each player can decide their strategy by guessing the opponent strategy. The results of this project may not be the same as those in real life due to the payoff matrix of each player are hard to decide
