I believe so, a long time ago.

Baseball came from a nearly identical game called townball and at that time 4 fouls in one at bat was an out, according to the sources of baseball history I have read. At one time, a strikeout was 4 strikes. In townball, the bat was flat like a paddle or an oar.

none that i am aware of. luke appling of chicago used to do it  intentionally, trying to  run up pitch counts  and enrage pitchers. it worked; he's in the hall of fame with 2 batting titles and at age77,hit a long homer in the old timers all star game years ago.
