Not sure if this is the right forum however I have a question regarding foul tips. Twice today in the Braves v Mets game the batter tipped the ball into the catcher's glove and I asked my wife why the batter was not out....the ball hit the bat and was caught by the catcher. She stated that it had to go over the catcher's head to be given out???
Why is it that a foul tip is not given out, the ball having been hit by the batter (albeit just a tip) and caught by the catcher?
