I propose to move "Strike zone" and "Walk" to the Batting category.

The strike zone is not a physical part of the field like the other areas listed in the Field category and is only relevant during Batting. Additionally, the content of the strike zone article fits much better with the Batting category, in that it talks a great deal about strikes and balls.

While a walk does fit in the Baserunning category, all types of hits are in the Batting category as well as hit-by-pitch. A walk is more similar to a hit than it is to, say, a stolen a base or other items in the Baserunning category. Walk, hit, and hit-by-pitch are all results of an at bat, and, therefore, should be together in the Batting category.
