It depends on how he leaves the playing field. If the fielder catches the ball in flight, and falls out of the playing field between homeplate and the yellow line on the wall (foul territory), the batter-runner is out as long as the player maintains full, controlled posession of the Baseball. However, if a player catches a ball and falls out of play over the yellow line signifying a homerun, the play should be ruled a homerun, but specific ground rules may be in effect to rule the batter out.
It is an out, just like when it is a fair ball that is caught.
This is called replayed ball
If he catches the ball, the fielder's position doesn't matter.
Yes, it would be a catch, provided the ball did not touch the ground at any time during the act of catching the ball.
The answer is true. If you throw a ball and a player on the other team catches it, you are out. Tyler
A batter is out anytime a fielder catches a foul fly ball.
A flyout is when the defender catches the ball without the ball hitting the ground
yes, as long as the ball does not hit the ground or other objects before the player has control of it and as long as any object that did touch the ball (the clothing) is in contact with the player, the catch is good, if the player demonstrates complete control of the ball.
No, that is considered a homerun.
