Batted Ball Bouncing off the Rubber and Caught on the Fly


Tony Singer from Ney, Ohio asks:

A batted baseball hits the pitching rubber without touching the ground and is caught in the air before touching the ground. Is the batter out?

Even though the ball never touched the dirt of the playing field, the ball hitting the pitching rubber is just the same as the ball hitting the ground, so the batter is not out by means of a fly ball being caught in the air
