it varies from ballpark to ball park there is no regulation
Foul poles help umpires decide if a ball (that went passed the wall) is fair or foul.
Both of the foul poles are usually a bright yellow, however, a few ballparks have orange foul poles
There is no actual line drawn between 1B and 2B or between 2B and 3B. The chalked lines between home plate and 1B and home plate and 3B are called the foul lines, and they extend all the way to the outfield fence. There are vertical poles where the foul lines touch the outfield fence, and they are called the foul poles. But the foul lines and the foul poles are in fair territory. There is a great book titled "Why Is The Foul Pole Fair?" by Vince Staten. It provides an answer to this question (and a lot of other cool stuff about baseball), though no explanation is given as to why the names have never been changed to "fair line" and "fair pole."
Fair or Foul TerritoryIn MLB, home plate is part of fair territory. The foul lines start at the back of the plate. All bases are fair territory.
the foul lines come directly to the point on the back of home plate. that is why a ball off the plate is a fair ball
Home plate is considered in fair territory. If the ball hits home plate and rolls into foul territory, the ball is foul. If the ball hits home plate and rolls into fair territory, the ball is fair.
Foul poles are poles that are placed vertically on a baseball field. They mark the areas where an umpire must look when determining if a ball is foul or fair. If a ball hits the foul pole, it is considered to be fair, and thus a home run.
