Anywhere one the field is 'in bounds'. If a Baseball is hit anywhere over the fence, anywhere on the field, it is out of bounds. If it is hit over the fence in the outfield it is a home run. Anywhere else it is just a foul ball.

If the ball finishes in bounds, there is no penalty, even if the ball travels out of bounds and somehow moves back in bounds. If the ball finishes on the out of bounds line (which is usually marked by white posts, or a fence) , it is deemed to be out of bounds, and you must replay your previous shot. You still have to count the out-of-bounds shot in your score, and there is also a one stroke penalty for hitting the ball out of bounds.
