Depending on the call all umpires can reverse a call but the crew chief supersedes all umpire ...


The chief umpire for the game, aka. plate umpire makes the final decision on a call when another umpire ask for help. If the umpire does not ask for help no other umpire should interfere with the call. The home plate umpire is the chief umpire, unless the league appoints an umpire as the chief umpire -- MLB appoints a crew chief for every umpire crew, all calls where umpires ask for help will come down to his final judgement. You can find all of this in 9.02 and 9.04 of the rules

Once a ball is called Foul, the ball is dead, time is out, and no runners can advance. So the call cannot be reversed, even if the umpire blew the call.

What does the umpire do when a batsman hits the ball to the boundary?

If it hits the umpire behind home plate, it is a foul ball. If it hits a field umpire who is in bounds, then it is a live ball, meaning that the batter might be thrown out at first, or he might reach first base safely (and then this would be scored as a hit without an error),

Why does the ball get handed to the umpire when it hits the dirt at homebase and not when the ball gets hit and hits the dirt in the infield?

The ball gets handed to the umpire once it hits the dirt and not in the instance of the baseball hitting the dirt in the field is up to the Home Plate Umpire's discretion however Pitchers have the rights to request a new baseball provided it becomes too dirty to get a grip on. Pitchers will like the dirt on the ball because it will be able to move more however the opposing team and Umpires will find this an unfair advantage which is the reason in which baseballs will usually be tossed out of play to the umpire but it doesn't always happen in the event of a batted ball hitting the infield dirt.
