There are lines placed to divide the foul territory and the fair territory. Any ball that lands on the foul territory will be called foul. When the ball enters the fair territory, ball is at play.
When the batter hits the ball into foul territory, and an opposing player catches it in foul territory on the fly.
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.
From the best of my knowledge the player can not be positioned in foul territory but is allowed to enter foul territory to retrieve or catch a foul ball.
If the ball is in fair territory, the fact that the fielder is standing in foul territory does NOT make the ball foul. the same as if a ball is foul, the fielder standing in fair territory doesn't make the ball fair.
Once a batted ball is touched by a defensive player in foul territory, it is ruled a foul ball regardless if said batted ball returns to fair territory.
it is a foul ball as long as someone in fair territory didnt touch it first
The location of the baseball decides if the ball is fair or foul. If the ball is in foul territory, the ball is foul regardless of the position of the player touching the ball. The same applies for balls in fair territory. This is opposite the ruling in football.
Anything not inside the 1st and 3rd baselines and anything that hits home plate.
Yes. As long as both feet are in fair territory or in contact with the foul line, the player is considered to be in fair territory.
It is the position of the ball in relation to the foul line...NOT the player.
