Who said fair is foul and foul is fair in Macbeth and why?

That's a line from Macbeth. Yes, the witches in Macbeth say the line "Fair is foul and foul is fair" in Act 1 Scene 1. The whole line is "Fair is foul, and foul is fair. Hover through the fog and filthy air". Why do they say it? Who knows, it's a witchy thing. But it does help set up a theme of moral ambiguity, of appearance not matching reality, which is a theme throughout the play. Some have argued that it is essentially what the play is all about.

In baseball why is the foul pole called a foul pole?

The foul Pole is to aide the umpire in determining if a baseball hit is fair or foul. The Foul pole is in fair territory, so if the ball hits the pole it is a fair ball, and would count as a home run. If it misses the pole outside of the playing field it is a foul ball (out of play) This is why it is called a 'Foul Pole" It could have been called a Fair Pole as it is in fair territory, but the powers that be decided on "Foul Pole" and "Foul Line"
