What is offensive foul?

An offensive foul is a foul committed by the team with the ball. For an example: if someone with the ball runs into someone one the defensive team, the ref may call an offensive foul (also known as "charging"). How ever if the defensive player wants to draw those type of fouls they need to "plant their feet" meaning they cannot move their feet, they must be still.But the rule is not perfect, sometimes they ref may call defensive foul (also known as "blocking"). Most blocks are called if the defensive player wouldn't set his feet, immediately jumps in their way, or stand in the "restriction area" (the arc shaped thing under the goal), those should be obvious blocks. NOTE:offensive fouls result in a turn over (other team gets ball).

== == == == A pick is when an offensive player without the ball stands still and acts as a wall in order to prevent a defensive player from being able to follow an offensive player with the ball, or to allow the offensive player with the ball to have a second or so of time open, allowing him to take a shot or make a pass. However, a pick is only legal if the player stands still while 'becoming a wall'. If he is moving, a foul is called. A pick is another term for a screen.

Yes. They would be out. Think of it like this. If a runner is running home from third and the catcher slides onto the plate with the ball, the runner is still out, even though the catcher is on the ground. As long as the Defensive player has possession of the ball, and is touching the base, the offensive player would be considered out.
