A foul fly shall be judged according to the relative position of the ball and the foul line, including the foul pole, and not as to whether the fielder is on foul or fair territory at the time he touches the ball.
Baseball’s rules for fair and foul balls are, admittedly, more complicated than you’d want them to be. Out of bounds in basketball doesn’t require much explanation, but why some balls that bounce into foul territory are fair while others are foul does. For that, we have Ross Barnes to thank.
the baseball is hit so far that it leaves the playing field between the foul poles or hits one of them (both of which types of events are very good for the batter) (E) or; the defense touches it while it is moving on or above fair territory. A (batted) baseball is a foul ball in all other cases.
If a fly ball lands in the infield between home and first base, or home and third base, and then bounces to foul territory without touching a player or umpire and before passing first or third base, it is a foul ball; or if the ball settles on foul territory or is touched by a player on foul territory, it is a foul ball.
When a batter hits the ball, it will either go into fair territory or foul territory. Fair territory is the area between the foul lines. The foul lines are formed between home plate and first base and home plate and third base.
