What do you call the lines drawn between 1st 2nd 3rd and home?

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."
