Dead or alive?
 
A fair batted ball passes F3 and hits the BU who is still standing in the A position in foul territory. Dead or alive?

Is this a trick question? Sounds like a live ball to me if it passed on the ground f3 and 1b in fair territory .

Any question you're not sure of the right answer too is a trick question.

Fair-Live ball... play on....


As BU, get ready to get razzed by your PU/partners after the game and for a few weeks to come.

Richard,

Based on your past posts and this simple question, I was expecting you to come out with some relevation that the play you described had some inner meaning that I must have been missing. Oh well.

What do you make of this?

2.16.1(d) A foul is a batted ball that, while on or over foul territory, touches the person of an umpire or a player or any object foreign to the natural ground;
