A baseball player gets a hit in 32 out of 140 times at a bat. The probability is 0.23that he gets a hit in his next at bat. Is this empirical, subjective, or classical?

This is an empirical probability. We are basing our estimate of the probability on observed behavior.

A subjective probability would be one that is different for different observers, and a classical probability would be one derived from theory or first principle (a priori knowledge of the system), which we don't have here (we have no knowledge of the player beyond what we have measured of his output).
