A fly out is technically any ball that is hit in the air and caught by a player in the field before it hits the ground or wall resulting in an out. There are different terms depending on where the ball is caught

'Fly out' is usually reserved for balls hit to the outfield and caught in fair territory by an outfielder

'Foul out' is a ball caught in foul territory for an out

'Popup' or 'Pop out' is used to describe a ball hit in the air and caught by an infielder

'Line out' is a ball that is hit hard without going very high into the air and is caught be any defender

A pop out is when the batter hits the ball high in the air but the ball stays within the infield or very shallow outfield and a fielder catches it.
