Home plate and all other bases are inside fair territory.

Home plate and all other bases are inside fair territory.

John asked: The batter swings and hits the ball,it bounces off home plate and into fair territory. Is it a fair ball ?

Rick answered: John, thank you for your question.

Home plate, as well as first, second and third bases are located within fair territory.

By definition, a fair ball is a batted ball which: a. settles
on fair territory between home and third base or between home and first base...

In your description, it would be a fair ball.

Yours in baseball,
