The Ole Ball Game

Foul or out?

Kevin asked: Play 2 outs full house, batter 3 balls 2 strikes. Batter hits ball and hits catcher in the chest, he caught it before it hit the floor.

Rick answered: Kevin, thank you for your question.

Is Batter Out?

The call hinges on whether or not the foul tip touches the catcher's glove before it hits his chest.

If it does, because it is strike three, batter is out.
