When a batter hits a ball but it goes outside the white lines (these line up with 3rd and 1st base)it is called a "foul ball" and it counts as a strike. However if the batter already has 2 strikes it does not count as anything because you can not "strike out" on a foul ball. You cannot have a foul ball on a bunt attempt if you have two strikes, however, as that is considered an out.

A foul ball is a ball that is hit outside of the foul lines on the field. A ball that bounces in fair territory then goes into foul territory before it passes a base is considered a foul ball. A ball that bounces in fair territory and then bounces into foul territory after it passes a base if considered a fair ball.

in softball you can hit a foul ball which is where you hit the ball to the side out of bounds. If you are wondering about a foul as in a penalty then you could be warned or thrown out of the game depending on how bad it is.

A foul tip in softball is when the pitched ball hits the bat and goes directly and sharply to the catcher, who catches it.

It is not a foul tip, when it is not caught - it's a foul ball then.

A foul tip is a strike and can be strike 3 (and therefore result in a strikeout). The ball is live and runner may advance (and thrown out).

The height of the ball (e.g. "not higher than the batter's head") is no more part of the rule - the ball has to go directly and sharply to the catcher.

It does not matter, whether it was a regular swing or a bunt attempt.
