    Yes, the pitcher is included. A baseball team does not only have 9 players in the team. Those are the amount of players on the field, excluding the 1 batter. In the MLB they have a back-up for everything,

    so I would say that there's like a 25-40 man roster on a MLB team. A MLB team will also have about 7 to 10 pitchers so keep that in mind. All other teams from travel ball to varsity highschool ball will vary.

    On the field, there are 9 players. The 3 outfielders, the first baseman, the second baseman, the third baseman, the shortstop, the catcher, and the pitcher. So the answer to your question is that the pitcher does count as a player.

    The pitcher is included with the 9. There is...

    1B- 1st basemen

    2B- 2nd basemen

    3B- 3rd basemen

    SS- Short Stop

    LF- Left fielder (outfielder)

    CF- Center fielder (outfielder)

    RF- Right fielder (outfielder)

    C- Catcher

    P- Pitcher

    all of these equals 9
