Baseball Foul Tips

What is foul tip in baseball?

A foul tip in baseball is a pitch which is barely hit by a batter. The baseball is usually deflected into foul territory, being called for a foul on the batter.

A strike will be called on a foul tip. A foul tip is an uncommon occurrence, when a baseball makes contact with the bat, then goes sharply into the catcher's glove. For a strike to be called, the catcher must catch the ball directly after the ball hit the bat. If the ball hits the bat then bounces on the ground before landing in the catcher's glove, it is not a foul tip.
