Best Answer

Your question is difficult to understand because of the way it is worded, so I'll try and cover the whole fair/foul question.

Any caught fly ball is an out, regardless of whether the ball is in fair or foul territory when caught, unless it is caught in out-of-play territory, in which case it is just a foul ball.

Any ground ball that is first touched while the ball is in fair territory is a playable fair ball, regardless of what happens after the touch, unless and until it goes into out-of-play territory.

Any ground ball that is first touched while the ball is in foul territory is a foul ball, regardless of what happens after the touch; if it is never touched, it is a foul ball.

If the ball bounces in fair territory but then bounces into the stands in foul territory past the infield, it's also a ground rule double.
