It is a fair ball in play if it is in fair territory when it is caught.
A fly out is technically any ball that is hit in the air and caught by a player in the field before it hits the ground or wall resulting in an out. There are different terms depending on where the ball is caught 'Fly out' is usually reserved for balls hit to the outfield and caught in fair territory by an outfielder 'Foul out' is a ball caught in foul territory for an out 'Popup' or 'Pop out' is used to describe a ball hit in the air and caught by an infielder 'Line out' is a ball that is hit hard without going very high into the air and is caught be any defender
Yes as it is still caught on the fly, without touching the ground. Depends on your definition. If a fly ball is caught in "Foul Ground", then yes it is an out. Some leagues, for safety reasons, have an "out of bounds" area beyond foul territory. If a ball is caught there, there is no out and it is considered a foul ball.
Out? What else?
Yes. If a foul ball is caught by a defensive player before it hits the ground the batter is out.
He is out. The bases only apply if he hits a ball that hits the ground or a wall in fair territory.
No, the bases are treated like part of the ground.
If the ball touches the wall before it gets caught, it is not a fly out. The ball is in play.
Once it hits the base, it is considered a ground ball.
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.
As long as none of the foul balls are caught before they touch the ground, there is no limit.
If the ball is in foul territory and hits a base runner in foul territory then it is a foul ball, so no he would not be out
I presume you meant to add "and it is caught in foul territory before it hits the ground." The batter is out because that is the rule. And it's the rule because it's the rule. I can't say any more than that.
The ball has to hit the ground in fair territory past the base before crossing the foul line for it to be fair. Even if the ball bounces in fair territory, if it crosses the foul line before it passes the base it's a foul ball.
NoNo it is not. It is the same as if it had hit the ground. It's no longer "in flight" once it hits an object other than a fielder. It's only an out if the ball is caught "in flight." Bobbling it, or tipping it to another fielder is OK--it can still be caught for an out.
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.
well if its rolls into fair territory before it passes either the third or first base then it would be fair
In MLB, yes. MLB Rule 6.05(b) states that a batter is out when "A third strike is legally caught by the catcher" with the added comment "'Legally caught' means in the catcher's glove before the ball touches the ground".
You may be thinking of being caught. If a fielder catches the ball after it has been hit by the batsman from a valid ball, within the field of play and before it hits the ground then the batsman is out - caught.
A pop fly is when the ball is hit and it goes in the air. If a pop fly is caught before it hits the ground, the batter is out. Grounders are balls that are hit on the ground that roll.
A chunk, or people may say you caught it fat, or if it bounces off the ground then the club hits the ball it is known as a drop kick.
This is to mark their territory. They also do droppings on the ground.
In the event of a batted ball being hit on the fly and was caught by an Infielder or Outfielder on the fly before it hit the ground, it will be ruled as a Fly Out and in the event of there being no outs, one out or two outs and in the event of there being runners on base, runners will have to return to their original bases prior to the pitched ball before they can advance to the next base.
The position of the fielder's body or feet, have absolutely nothing to do with judging whether a ball is fair or foul. The judgment is based solely upon the relationship between the BALL and the LINE at the moment the fielder touches the ball, or at the moment the ball comes to a stop, or on outfield fly balls; the moment it touches the fielder or the ground.
