A ball that lands inbounds (fair ball) and then bounces over a fence or other barrier is ruled a 'ground rule double'. The batter is required to stop at second base. All other runners are allowed to advance two bases or to home plate, scoring a run.
If the ball hits the ground it cannot be called a strike. It is a "ball". It can still be hit like any other "ball". It would be like hitting a high, low, inside or outside pitch. Any "ball" can still be put in play.
I am under the assumption that the fielder must come down with the ball in fair territory for this to be an out. If he catches the ball while he is jumping over the fence and lands out of the playing area then it is a home run.
Correct or Incorrect?
If the ball hits the top of the yellow fence it is a homerun, even if it comes back onto the field.
It would be an out. It is still in play and is considered a flyball which if caught in the air, the batter is out.
Its called POLEDANCE -.-
Yes, that is a home run. Im not sure of the rule number, but it is a homer.
It is a Home Run.
Yes. It clears the fence and hits me.
No if it is a foul ball or if it hits the fence and you catch it it does not matter you still can play it if it is not foul but if it is foul and you catch it when it hits the fence they just call it a strike. Actually - you CAN catch a ball off the fence. There is no rule against it, however it will NOT be counted as an out. The fence is part of the field just like the ground. Therefore, if it hits the fence in foul or fair territory, it is played the same as if it had hit the ground before you caught it.
No, it is simply a ground ball and is in play.
The ball must clear the fence or hit above the yellow line. If the ball hits the line and comes back into play then it is a live ball (assuming it wasnt interfered with by a fan) just like any other ball that hits off the wall. In stadiums like Chase Field in Arizona that have a line on their wall in centerfield, if the ball hits above that line then it is a homerun, below the line is just a hit off the wall. Same with Fenway Park in Boston and where the "Green Monster" meets the wall in centerfield
It is a ground ball.
As long as the ball does not touch the ground or a wall, the batter is called out.
No...as soon as the batted ball touches the runner, the ball is dead.
A Ground rule double
