  • If the umpire calls it a foul ball, then the umpire is incorrect. Home plate is considered part of fair territory. http://www.baseball-rules.com/fairfoul.htm However, if the umpire called it foul and does not reverse his decision, then it is a foul ball and the batter returns to the batter's box. A strike is also assessed if the batter had zero or one strike.
  • It is a bad call by the ump, but once he says "Foul Ball" it is a foul ball. He should have kept his mouth shut, as ALL of home plate is in fair territory, and the play was a legal play.
  • it's fair
  • Fair Ball! Home plate is part of fair territory.
  • I say its foul, The ump should have called it before batter ran, its not fair to call it when hes at 1st already. I don't know if this is accurate..but its my opinion.
  • It doesn't matter where home plate is (It is infact in fair territory), however whether a ball is fair or foul before 1st and 3rd base is where a person touches the ball!!! The ball can land foul and then roll into fair territory and it is a fair ball!!!!!
