No. The Home Plate Umpire, the Catcher, and the Batters are in foul territory, because they are all positioned behind the foul lines.
At home plate, they are not far apart at all. At the fences, they are over 500 feet apart. The foul lines form a right angle at home plate
Fair or Foul TerritoryIn MLB, home plate is part of fair territory. The foul lines start at the back of the plate. All bases are fair territory.
All of home plate is considered to be in fair territory. The foul lines run to 1st and 3rd from the back point of the plate. The ball would be fair.
From the back tip of home plate (where the first and second base foul lines meet) to the front of the pitching rubber.
Home plate is considered in fair territory. If the ball hits home plate and rolls into foul territory, the ball is foul. If the ball hits home plate and rolls into fair territory, the ball is fair.
It really all depends where it goes from there. If it comes to a stop on home plate, it is a fair ball. The foul lines start at the back corner of home plate.
There is no specific distance for the outfield, but the baselines are 90 feet and from home to the pitchers mound is 60 feet 6 inches. ------------------------------------------------------------ The Official Baseball Rules specify 325' minimum distance from Home Plate to the outfield wall where the left and right field foul lines intersect it. They also call for a minimum 400' depth from Home Plate to the wall in center field, and a 60' minimum distance from the bases and Home Plate to foul territory, for all ballparks built after 1958.
There is no actual line drawn between 1B and 2B or between 2B and 3B. The chalked lines between home plate and 1B and home plate and 3B are called the foul lines, and they extend all the way to the outfield fence. There are vertical poles where the foul lines touch the outfield fence, and they are called the foul poles. But the foul lines and the foul poles are in fair territory. There is a great book titled "Why Is The Foul Pole Fair?" by Vince Staten. It provides an answer to this question (and a lot of other cool stuff about baseball), though no explanation is given as to why the names have never been changed to "fair line" and "fair pole."
The center of home plate will be where the two foul poles meet at a right (90 degree) angle
there are 3 bases and 1 plate (at home), the bases, are how you determine if a runner is safe or out. home plate is designed and shaped so it is used to determine balls and strikes as well as determine where the foul lines start
if a batted ball hits home plate and goes into fair territory it is a fair ball since the plate is in fair territory however it a batted ball hits the plate and goes foul it is a foul ball
Home plate is in fair territory. The ball is fair unless it goes foul after it hits the plate.
Home plate is foul territory unless the ball rolls in front of the plate and stays fair. If the ball bounces off the plate and strikes the batter; it's a dead ball.
if it bounces fair and stays far its fair if it went foul and stayed foul it foul... if it hit the plate and hit the batter while he was in the batters box its foul if it hit him out of the batters box he is out
it is different on every feild
this is a fair ball
There is no rule in MLB prohibiting the batter from stepping on home plate. However, the batter may be out for bunting foul with two strikes.
No - the entire plate is in fair territory, so a batted ball that hits the plate is in play; however, if it goes foul after hitting the plate, it is a (foul) dead ball.
home plate is fair territory
Home plate is considered fair territory. Thus, if the ball hits home plate AND then never leaves fair territory, it remains a fair ball. However, if the ball hits home plate, and afterwards goes into foul territory before leaving the infield, then it is a foul ball.
The level of baseball is irrelevant. From Coach pitch to the majors, home plate is in fair territory. The reason why the plate is the only base that comes to a triangle is because that's the beginning of the foul lines as they extend out to foul pole--which is why the "arrow" of the plate never points to the pitcher. Any ball that has not crossed 1st or 3rd base is not fair or foul until it is touched or goes completely out of play. It doesn't matter where the catcher is, it matters where he touches the ball. The ball can hit the plate and bounce straight up or it could even hit behind the plate. If the catcher touches the ball directly over home plate, it's a fair ball.
