Kyle asked: Batted ball hit, bounces off home plate & rolls to pitcher, who fields it & throws to 1st for the out.
Was the batted ball fair or foul?
Rick answered: Kyle, thank you for your question.
All three bases and home plate are located inside fair territory.
When the ball hit home plate, it was fair and stayed in fair ground when it rolled to the pitcher and he threw out the batter-runner.
In the 3 images above you can get a view of where the baseline is located in relation to home plate. The angled back sections of the plate are an extension of the foul lines.
Yours in baseball,
