Right or wrong...

The use of has or have in the sentence is a curious sentence...jasminade is right for the reasons she stated... As a practical matter of speech I often try saying the word phrase to myself to see which it most appropriate. For example, just say this, you has to... and you have to... You will quickly...

is/are

grammarman is correct in his thinking. The word is the only word which can be used correctly in this sentence for a few reasons: 1. The words bat and ball are in the singular form. We cannot say there are a bat or there are a ball 2. The use of the conjunction and in the sentence serves to separate...
