Hit Off Home


Jamie from Georgia asks:

If a ball is hit and it bounces off of home plate is it fair or foul?

Home plate is in fair territory but it does not matter if the batter hits the ball of home plate or not, a fair or foul ball is decided by where it is when touched by an infielder. However, if a ball is to come to rest on home plate or the catcher touches the ball above home plate then the ball is fair.
