If a batted ball lands in fair territory but then crosses the foul line BEFORE passing or touching first or third base, then it is a FOUL ball.
If a batted ball lands in fair territory between first and third base, bounces in the air, and crosses into foul territory before passing first or third base, it is a foul ball, even if caught on the bounce in foul territory by the first or third baseman.
If the ball never touches the ground before the 3rd baseman catches the ball the batter is out.
catches the baseball that's thrown to first base
No. It's the same as American football.
When the batter hits the ball into foul territory, and an opposing player catches it in foul territory on the fly.
The ball is fair.If it bounces fair and the player catches it then steps in foul territory,it's fair because he touched the baseball before it went foul.
A putout in baseball is the person who has the ball when the out is made. example: on a strike out the putout goes to the catcher on a ground out to the 1st baseman the 1st baseman gets the putout on a flyout the one who catches the ball gets the putout
A batter is out anytime a fielder catches a foul fly ball.
He does a variety of things during a game. He calls and catches the pitches, throws out baserunners, blocks the plate from a run scoring situation or a wild pitch, backs up the 1st baseman , catches foul balls and makes plays in the infield.
No. Once a batted ball strikes a baserunner the ruling is a dead ball. In this instance, if the runner is in fair territory, they player struck by the ball is out, and the batter is credited with a single --- if the runner is in foul territory and struck this is a foul ball. Same would apply with hitting the batting coach
Well, a first baseman plays on the right side of the infield, on groundballs the 2nd baseman shortstop and thirdbaseman all throw the ball across the infield and if the first baseman catches the ball before the hitter touches first it is an out. On a basehit to the outfield if there is a play at home the first baseman will act as a cutoff man to homeplate to the center and right fielders. Here are a few great first basemens currently playing- Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder and Mark Teixeria.
It depends on where the ball is when the catcher catches it. The fact that the ball hit the plate does not matter one bit. It doesn't even matter where the catcher himself is when he catches it. If the ball is in or over fair territory it is fair, if the ball is in or over foul territory it is foul.
No, as soon as the batter is hit by the ball, the play is considered dead and the batter gets his base.
