Is a tipped ball an out if the catcher catches it?

Only if it's the third strike. A ball tipped by the bat but caught by the catcher without hitting the ground is ALWAYS considered a strike, thus eliminating any controversy on whether the batter actually tipped the ball or not.

Is an out called if the batter nicks the ball and the catcher catches it before it hits the ground?

Only if it is on a third strike. That would be considered a foul tip and, by official rule, is different from a foul ball. A foul tip is when the catcher catches a ball that is 'tipped' by the batter and the ball goes straight back into the catcher's mitt. If the catcher drops the ball it is considered a foul ball and not a foul tip.

Is the batter out if the catcher catches a tipped ball?

Only on a third strike. If it is tipped and caught at any other time it is simply a strike. Keep in mind that this is only for a foul tip if the ball significantly changes direction in an upward direction and is coming back down then it would considered a pop foul and would be an out if caught.

If a batter foul tips a pitch that is caught by the catcher can a base runner steal?

Out of bounds pass in football?

In American Football, if a player has one foot out of bounds when he catches the football, he is out of bounds. If he has is in bounds when he catches the football then he caught it and it is a completed catch. If the player goes out of bounds and comes back in bounds and catches the football it is still an incomplete pass. However, if he was knocked out of bounds or if the ball was tipped, it may be a completed pass. The rules keep changing at all levels of the game.

Can a runner on first base steal second on a foul tip?

Foul-tip Rule 2.00 see also; Strike (g) and 6.05(b) There is nothing "FOUL" about a foul-tip. It is a strike and the ball is alive. A foul-tip is the same as a swing and a miss. To be a foul-tip, by rule, the ball must go sharp and direct from the bat to the catcher's hand or glove AND BE CAUGHT. Confusion arises on this because people commonly call any ball that is tipped or nicked a foul-tip. It is not a foul-tip, by rule, unless the nicked or tipped ball is caught. If it is not caught, it is simply a foul-ball. A foul-ball is a dead ball. A foul-tip (a legally caught nick) is a live ball strike, just like a swing and a miss. Read the rule in the Official Baseball Rules

Runner on1st base batter with 2 strikes on next pitch the batter swings and misses runner is safe at 2nd but ump sends him back to 1st batter is called out Why?

I am the person that posed the question, but I want to add a little more than what fit in the question box. First of all, I believe I have seen just about everything there is to see happen in a baseball game. However, at the Braves/Phillies game this weekend I was in the stands when something happened that I have never seen, and there was no anouncer to explain what may have happened. Here it is: With one out in the 6th inning Pat Burrell was batting with Chase Utley on first base. Burrell had a 2-2 count and Utley took off in an attempt to steal 2nd base. Burrell swung and missed. The Braves catcher threw to 2nd base too late and the ump called Utley safe. Next thing the umps are having a meeting and then break out. They send Utley back to 1st base and call Burrell out. I cannot figure out why Utley was sent back to 1st. The only thing I can think of was that maybe Burrell foul tipped the ball for the 3rd strike and we could not hear it; and that, perhaps, the rules say that a runner on base cannot advance if the batter foul tips the ball. If anyone knows the rule that governs this play please reply. If time was called before the pitch then Burrell would still be alive. ---- Without having seen nor heard of the play I can't really comment other than to say 1) A foul tip is a strike and has no bearing on whether a player can attempt to steal a base. 2) One possible explanation is that Burrell's bat, after swinging and missing, hit the catcher during his throw to second base. This would be considered batter interference and the runner attempting the steal, if successful, would be sent back to his original base. If the runner were thrown out then the out would be recorded. This is covered in MLB Rule 6.06(c): A batter is out for illegal action when -- "He interferes with the catcher's fielding or throwing by stepping out of the batter's box or making any other movement that hinders the catcher's play at home base. EXCEPTION: Batter is not out if any runner attempting to advance is put out, or if runner trying to score is called out for batter's interference. Rule 6.06(c) Comment: If the batter interferes with the catcher, the plate umpire shall call "interference." The batter is out and the ball dead. No player may advance on such interference (offensive interference) and all runners must return to the last base that was, in the judgment of the umpire, legally touched at the time of the interference. If, however, the catcher makes a play and the runner attempting to advance is put out, it is to be assumed there was no actual interference and that runner is out-not the batter. Any other runners on the base at the time may advance as the ruling is that there is no actual interference if a runner is retired. In that case play proceeds just as if no violation had been called. If a batter strikes at a ball and misses and swings so hard he carries the bat all the way around and, in the umpire's judgment, unintentionally hits the catcher or the ball in back of him on the backswing before the catcher has securely held the ball, it shall be called a strike only (not interference). The ball will be dead, however, and no runner shall advance on the play."

Are the seasons on earth caused by an elliptical orbit around the sun?

No. The seasons are caused by the Earth being tipped to one side. In winter the part of the Earth having winter is the farthest from the Sun and the Sun's rays strike it at a very low angle, meaning that the rays are weaker. In summer, the part of the Earth having summer is closest to the Sun, and the Sun's rays strike it straignt on, meaning the rays are stronger. You can see from this that while the northern part of Earth is tipped toward the Sun, and is having summer, the southern part of Earth is tipped away from the Sun, and is having winter.

A fly ball is tipped and then caugth by a different baseball player?

As long as the ball does not hit a wall, the batter is out. The fielder that tipped the ball is credited with an assist and the fielder that caught the ball is credited with a put out. An example of this would be the 9th inning of Game 6 of the 1980 World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Kansas City Royals. The Royals were behind 4-1 with one out and the bases loaded. Frank White hit a foul pop fly just in front of the Phillies dugout. Both catcher Bob Boone and first baseman Pete Rose went to the ball with Boone calling off Rose. The ball landed in Boone's mitt and popped out. Rose was right there and snatched the ball out of the air before it hit the ground for the out. The next batter struckout and the Phillies had won their first ever World Series.
