    Re: Rules question

    Sorry if we've already covered this one.

    Foul tip strike caught by the catcher...

    Does the ball stay live? Can a baserunner steal or be picked off after a caught foul tip?

    If the catcher drops or misses the foul tip ball it is a dead ball right?

    WHAT?!?!? Did you forget the sarcasm emoticon??

    If a batter has THE WHOLE FOOT outside the batter's box and makes contact with the ball, then it's a dead ball and he's out. If the ball hits the batter, then it depends on if he made an effort to move away from the pitch.

    Does the ball stay live? Yup! and it must go STRAIGHT into the mitt. Can't bounce off his face, the dirt, his knee, etc and then go in the mitt. Can a baserunner steal or be picked off after a caught foul tip? Yup!

    If the catcher drops or misses the foul tip ball it is a dead ball right?
    Yup!
