Official scoring on on a routine Flyball that bounces off out fielder and goes over fence
Fair Ball Deflected Out Of Play
Dave asked: Official score on fly ball that bounces off out fielder and goes over fence.
Rick answered: Dave, thank you for your question.
Rule 6.09...Any fair fly ball is deflected by a fielder into the stands, or over the fence in foul territory, in which case the batter shall be entitled to advance to second base; but if deflected into the stands or over the fence in fair territory, the batter shall be entitled to a home run.
However, should such a fair fly ball be deflected at a point less than 250 feet from home plate, the batter shall be entitled to two bases only.
Yours in baseball,
