Fly BallI always call it a dying duck because it seems to hover for a second drops straight down pop fly looper. Answer

Another term for a lazy fly ball is 'a can of corn' although I have yet to learn of the term's origin.

'Can of corn' derives from the practice in bygone days of stacking canned good on shelves all the way to the ceiling. Rather than keep out a bulky ladder and run up and down every time a customer wanted a good from a shelf too high to reach, shopkeepers kept a long stick with which to knock cans off the shelf and then catch them. I can only assume corn is used because of the alliteration.

Why a ball of high trajectory is easy to catch?

yes it is easy to catch a ball of high trajectory because the ball moves in projectile motion. projectile motion is the act of projecting an object into the air at an angle.

Runner on third and less than two outs. The batter hits a foul fly ball that is caught. The runner tags up and scores. Does the batter get an RBI?

By rule, there are four criteria for a sacrifice fly. 1) The ball is hit to the outfield, 2) The batter is out because an outfielder made the catch or an infielder made the catch in the outfield, 3) There are less than two outs, 4) A runner already on base scores after the catch. The official scorer has the option of giving a batter a sacrifice fly in instances when all four rules are not met. For example, if the outfielder drops what appeared to be an easy fly ball, the scorer could charge the outfielder with an error and award the batter a sacrifice fly. The answer to this question is yes, the batter would be awarded an RBI.

If you catch a baseball how long do you have to hold it to make it a fly ball?

Long enough for the fielder to demonstrate to the official(s) that he has control of the ball. If he drops it 'during the course of fielding' it's deemed not a catch. If it is deemed, by the ump, to be dropped in the transfer from glove to throwing motion you won't have held it very long, but it is a judgement call and may go against you. The same for catching a fly ball, its upto the ump. Just don't drop it!_________________________________________________________________________________ A fly ball is a term for when the batter hits the ball and it goes high in the air, and usually makes for an easy out because they are easy for outfielders to catch

Why is there no sacrifice ground ball in baseball?

There is no sacrifice ground ball in baseball because you don't try to sacrifice yourself to advance the runner on the ground ball. Also, on a bunt, it's hard to get the leading runner anyway, so the fielder most of the time goes for the batter at first. On a ground ball however, the fielder most of the time has an easy option for the lead runner as well as the batter.
