Yes. For example, if the batter pops up into foul territory behind the catcher, the catcher can be scored for an error if he gets under the ball, the ball drops into his glove, but he then drops the ball. The batter gets another chance to bat, but no matter what happens later in his at-bat, the run will be unearned due to the catcher's error.

Foul ball tuched by a player in foul territory then falls into fair territory is it foul or fair?

It's where the ball would have fallen originally so if the ball would have landed foul by the estimation of the umpire it would be ruled a foul ball. Also, if it was a play that didn't require uncommon effort to make the player that tried to make the play would be given an error.


If the player is in foul territory and drops the ball is the batter safe?

If the ball is in fair territory, the fact that the fielder is standing in foul territory does NOT make the ball foul. the same as if a ball is foul, the fielder standing in fair territory doesn't make the ball fair.


How many fouls are needed to foul out in baseball?

In baseball a batter can ONLY be called out on a hit foul ball if said foul ball is caught without it hitting the ground ... and personally I think that rule is very foully itself. In order to speed up the game of baseball and make it more exciting, I propose there be a strict limit on foul balls. Change the rules in professional baseball and make it that once the count reaches two strikes, the batter may only hit ONE MORE FOUL BALLwithout penalty. On the second foul after the second strike, the batter is OUT ... and it's scored as a strikeout for the pitcher. It's that simple!


Is the batter out if he inadvertently make contact with a slow rolling ball in foul territory?

If the ball itself is in foul territory, then the batter would not be out, because once the ball is foul it's considered a dead ball. Anybody can touch it.

No, a wild pitch is a wild pitch -- it is considered a mistake charged to the pitcher. An "error" in baseball is a fielding mistake. A pitcher can make an "error" but only on a batted or thrown ball.


What is reaching in foul?

Reaching in is not a foul. The term is nowhere to be found in any rulebook. There must be contact to have a foul. The mere act of reaching in, by itself, is nothing. If contact does occur, it's either a holding foul or an illegal use of hands foul. When a player, in order to stop the clock, does not make a legitimate play for the ball, holds, pushes or grabs away from the ball, or uses undue roughness, the foul is an intentional foul.

How do you get a foul in softball?

Usually when you hit a ball foul, it means that you didn't make solid contact with the ball when you hit it. (Usually the ball is skimmed on some part of the bat or it is hit too far on the end or inside of the bat.) If you want to try to get fouls, try to hit the ball really early or really late, resulting in a solid hit outside of the lines, but still counting as a foul ball.


Can a runner advance if the hitters bat touches the ball and the catcher catches it?

YES if you are playing by MLB rules. In Major League Baseball that situation would result in a FOUL TIP, the pitch is considered a strike, and the ball is in play. According to MLB definitions, "A FOUL TIP is a batted ball that goes sharp and direct from the bat to the catchers hand(glove) and is legally caught." If a batted ball takes a "sharp and direct" path towards the catcher's glove and IS NOT caught then it is a FOUL BALL, the ball is considered "dead", and the runner CAN NOT advance. For example, if a runner attempts to steal second base and as the pitch arrives a FOUL TIP occurs, if the runner is not thrown out, a stolen base is awarded UNLESS the FOUL TIP results in a third strike to make the third out of an inning.

In basketball how many fouls are there until you foul out?

In the NBA, a player is disqualified upon picking up his sixth foul. In American college and International play, a player is disqualified upon picking up his fifth foul. As for baseball, well, I think their rule is very foully itself. In order to speed up the game of baseball and make it more exciting, I propose there be a strict limit on foul balls. Change the rules in professional baseball and make it that once the count reaches two strikes, the batter may only hit ONE MORE FOUL BALLwithout penalty. On the second foul after the second strike, the batter is OUT ... and it's scored as a strikeout for the pitcher. It's that simple!


Is it a shot attempt if you are called for a charging foul?

Sometimes. Refs call charging foul when a player on the other team sees you coming his way with the ball. That player has to plant his feet into the ground, and not move to make the other player foul. If the player (player with the ball) bumps the other player (the player without the ball) knocking him over, a charge will be called. But that player cannot move his feet, he has to take the contact. However if you step in front of the player with the ball and he knocks you over, it's a blocking foul which will be called on the player who stood in the way, the player without the ball.


Is the game over if you make the cue ball in a pocket on the break?

What is a good sentence with the word foul?

Foul can be an adjective, a noun, or a verb. As an adjective, it can mean offensive to smell; evil, impure, or wicked; filthy or covered with something noxious; very undesirable or loathsome; stormy; outside the foul lines in baseball; or unfair or not according to the rules of a sport or game. As a noun, it can mean either a ball hit outside the foul lines in baseball or an action that is not according to the rules of a sport or game. As a verb, it can mean to make foul, to become entangled, or to hit a ball outside the foul lines in baseball. Here are some sample sentences.As adjective:"The foul smell of rotting Easter eggs caused the cats to investigate.""Child abuse is a foul act.""When the new owners removed the boards from the door of the small hut on the property, they were dismayed to see a foul room encrusted with years of dirt.""The foul weather kept most people indoors.""The first batter hit several foul balls before hitting one into the infield.""Hitting below the belt is a foul move in boxing."As noun:"The football player was removed from the game for too many fouls.""The catcher caught the foul and made the final out of the inning."As verb:"The baby fouled his crib.""She no longer goes fishing because she tends to foul the fishing line on rocks or tree limbs.""The next batter often fouls the ball."

Is it an out if the batter foul tips the ball and it goes in an arc below the batter's head into the catcher's glove?

Yes. Many people learned that the ball must go over the batter's head, or at least six feet high, in order for it to be considered an out when caught. However baseball rules only make an exception for a foul tip, which is defined as follows:"A FOUL TIP is a batted ball that goes sharp and direct from the bat to the catcher's hands and is legally caught. It is not a foul tip unless caught and any foul tip that is caught is a strike, and the ball is in play. It is not a catch if it is a rebound, unless the ball has first touched the catcher's glove or hand."A ball that traveled in an arc before being caught would be considered a foul ball, and catching it would retire the batter, regardless of whether or not it went over the batter's head. As a practical matter, the case described in the question is very unlikely, so the practical difference between the actual rule of foul tips (sharp and direct) and what many believe the rule to be (below the batter's head or under six feet) is probably irrelevant.
