The Knickerbocker Rules are a set of Baseball rules formalized by Alexander Cartwright in 1845. They are considered to be the basis for the rules of the modern game. Rule 10th. A ball knocked out of the field, or outside the range of the first and third base, is foul. * Foul balls were not considered strikes initially. Some years later, when it became clear that a batter might hit foul balls endlessly in an effort to get a good pitch to hit, the pitcher was given somewhat of a break by an 1858 rule that declared any foul ball to be a strike, unless there were already two strikes on the batter. After the bunt came into existence as a strategy, it also became clear that a batter could literally bunt all day to try to get his pitch. To retain some balance, the rule was further amended, in 1894, to declare any foul bunt a strike.
