A ball that lands inbounds (fair ball) and then bounces over a fence or other barrier is ruled a 'ground rule double'. The batter is required to stop at second base. All other runners are allowed to advance two bases or to home plate, scoring a run.
A foul ball is considered a strike in softball if you catch it its an out. but if it bounces of a fence an you catch it its not an out. If it bounces of an that would have been the third stike then its an out
It is considered a legally batted ball subject to being a fair or foul ball. Also, if a pitched ball bounces in the dirt and strikes the batter, the ball is dead and the batter receives first base as he was legally hit by a pitched ball.
If the batter is in fair territory, the batter is out. If the batter is not in fair territory, for example the batter is still in the batter's box, the ball is called foul.
A Ground rule double
Depends. If the ball bounces of a defensive player, and is caught, the batter is out. If it hits a runner, the ball is dead and the runner is out but the hitter is awarded first base.
No, a home run is when the ball goes out of the field.
NO, if the ball bounces in the batter's box the hit is automatically called a foul ball.
No. You fool.
a catcher does more than you think for example if the ball gets by the batter then it would go all the way back to the fence, or if a runner is stealing then who is going to throw the ball to get them out
