If it is a fly ball into the outfield up the first or third base foul line, it will be the responsibility of the first or third base umpire. If it is a (pop) fly ball in the infield area, it is generally the responsibility of the closest umpire. If it is a ground ball up the foul line between home and first or home and third, it is generally the home plate umpire's responsibility; however, if it is a bounding ball that bounces over or nearly over first or third base, or if it is a ground ball that continues to roll up the line almost to first or third, it will generally be the responsibility of the first or third base umpire. This is one of the reasons umpires work as a team for several games in succession, so they know what each of their responsibilities are.
In play-off games, there may be additional umpires on the field and these responsibilities will be adjusted accordingly.
Fair is opposite. Foul Ball, Fair Ball.
If the batter "knocks" a ball foul it's foul ...if a fielder "knocks" the ball foul while in fair territory the ball is fare... the fielder can catch the ball in foul territory for an out ...
It is considered a foul out. The ball determines wether it is fair or foul.
The ball is foul. Once a ball hits the dirt in foul territory before it gets past first or third base, it is a foul ball. It does not matter what happens after that. If a ball hits fair, foul, fair, it is foul. If it bounces foul and then into fair territory, it is foul. If the ball hits fair passed first or third and then bounces foul, it is fair. Those are the rules. You have to hit it past the batter's box. You have to hit it in the lines. It has to stay in the lines. If you lay a bunt down the third base line and it goes foul, it is a foul.It is NOT a foul ball once it hits dirt in foul territory before getting past 1st or 3rd. It is determined fair or foul by where the ball is when touched by a fielder or ends up when the ball has stopped. The ball can roll fair then foul the fair then foul then fair and if the ball comes to a rest or is touched by a fielder in fair play then it is fair. With the umpire calling it foul when it hit the dirt he has made a wrong call, as the ball has not been touched or has not come to rest in foul territory. however with him calling it too soon I think it would be a dead ball and remain with the wrong call of foul.No matter what it should be, whatever the umpire calls it, it is. The umpire is always right even when he is wrong he is right!
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.
if the ball is not touch in foul territory and rolls into fair territory and stops or is touch then it is a fair ball. the answer is no.
if it stayed fair its fair if it went foul its foul
if it was contacted in fair ground its fair ff
A ground ball its fair. A fly ball is foul.
Fair. If the ball hits the bag [base] first then goes foul it is fair
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.
