Best Answer

A pop-fly is called a pop-fly whether it is caught or not. To qualify as an out, the defensive player must gain control of the ball before it touches the ground for the first time. If he catches it but drops it right away, it is not considered a catch. However, if the player drops the ball on the transfer from glove to throwing hand, it is still considered an out.

What happens when a ball is droped and it hits the ground?

For a batted fly ball that is dropped: If it was first touched in foul territory, it is a foul ball. If it was first touched in fair territory and falls to the ground NOT in out-of-play territory, it is a fair ball and is in play. If it was first touched in fair territory and falls to the ground in out-of-play territory, it is a dead ball and the batter and any runners will be awarded the appropriate base according to the rules.

Two identical ball are dropped from different heights at the same timeWhich ball will have a greater force acting on it before it hits the ground?

The ball dropped from the higher height will have a greater force before it hits the ground. This is due to the air resistance that is acting against the ball, and there would be more resistance against the ball dropped at a higher height than a lower height.


Can the kicker punt the ball into the uprights on a fieldgoal?

I believe this IS allowed in the NFL so long as the ball leaves the kicker's foot before crossing the line of scrimmage. I can't recall though ever seeing this type of kick DONE in an NFL game. ---- A field goal is attempted when the ball is placed on the ground for the kicker to kick or when the ball is dropped to the ground and kicked once it touches the ground and starts its bounce back up. In other words, the ball must have touched the ground or is touching the ground when the kick is attempted for the attempt to be considered a 'field goal attempt'. A punt occurs when a kicker kicks the ball before it has touched the ground. No points can be scored by a punt. So the answer to the question, as I understand it, is no. No. If a punted ball travels through the uprights, no points are scored. The ball has to make contact with the ground before it's kicked to score points, either by placekick or dropkick.
