(Redirected from Foul Ball
In baseball, a foul ball is a batted ball that lands in foul territory—the part of the playing field outside the first and third base lines that extend to the outfield fence. A batted ball is considered "foul" when these criteria are met, or if the ball touches a player, umpire, or any object not part of the playing field while the ball is in foul territory. The first two foul balls of any one batter's at-bat count as strikes, but a foul ball cannot count as a third strike (and thus a strikeout) unless the batter was attempting to bunt. Hence, there is no limit on the number of two-strike foul balls that can occur.
