In baseball, if a ball is hit to the point that the batter can run around all bases and get back to home plate without being interfered with the other team it is considered a home run. A home run is typically hit over the outfield fence, and the fence should be at least 250 feet away from home base.
The little league home run fence in non tourney play is 200 down the left and right field fence and 205 in center field. In tourney play it is 220 down the left and right field fence and 225 in center field.
A ball hit over the fence
in baseball: when a person hits the ball over the outfield fence, or beyond the distance measured as a home run
The home run in softball is the same as in baseball. When the batter hits the ball over the outfield fence in fair territory it is a home run. It is also considered a home run if the batter hits the ball inside the fence and is able to run all the bases and back to home plate before being thrown out.

Anywhere one the field is 'in bounds'. If a baseball is hit anywhere over the fence, anywhere on the field, it is out of bounds. If it is hit over the fence in the outfield it is a home run. Anywhere else it is just a foul ball.
Most ballparks vary in distance to the outfield fence, but with a 90-foot basepath field, one would be hard-pressed to find a fence shorter than 300 feet from home plate.
You have to play baseball and get a home run, I think it says something like you have to run far to get this gem. (Home run, far)
My understanding is that the height of the wall should be equivilant to the subtracted length of the regulation home run distance; hence, if your wall is placed 30' short of the standard home run wall distance from the appex of home plate, the home run line should be located 30' vertically on a wall at that location.
A ball hit over the fence
It is still a home run no matter what.
In the "modern' era of baseball, Jackie Robinson was the first African American to hit a home run in Major League baseball. As far as the history of baseball is concerned their is no record of such a feat as to amateur baseball games.
In baseball, a home run is a base hit in which the batter is able to circle all the bases, ending at home plate and scoring a run himself (along with a run scored by each runner who was already on base), with no errors by the defensive team on the play which result in the batter advancing for extra bases. Today, the feat is typically achieved by hitting the ball over the outfield fence, resulting in an automatic home run.
It is a home run as long as the ball never bounced on the ground or against the fence. If it does, than it is the umpires' discretion on where to place the runners.
The most common way a home run is hit is when a batter hits a ball over the fence in fair territory. The other way a home run can be hit is called an inside-the-park home run, which is when a batter hits a fair ball that does not leave playable territory and the batter reaches home plate before the defensive team puts him out and there are no errors on the play.
I am under the assumption that the fielder must come down with the ball in fair territory for this to be an out. If he catches the ball while he is jumping over the fence and lands out of the playing area then it is a home run. Correct or Incorrect?
Ball Bouncing Home Runno because if it bounce over the fence it is called a ground rule double. the runner advances to second base. so no it hasn't and never will. Yes, this was a rule in MLB until 1930. The rule was changed for the 1931 season to read:"A fair hit ball which bounces through or over a fence, or into the stands, is considered a ground rule double instead of a home run."

When a ball hits this yellow line, it is considered a home run in major league baseball. Most ballparks have this yellow line that helps umpires judge if a ball went over the wall.
