2.0 Definition of Terms -  Infield Fly:

In an Infield Fly is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second, third bases are occupied, before two are out.  Both pitcher and catcher are considered as an infielder.


This means….a fair fly ball – by rule is a batted ball that goes high in the air in flight (section 2.)

If a runner is on first and second with  either no outs or one out…this would be considered an Infield Fly.

If a runner is on first, second and third with either no outs or one out ..this would be an Infield Fly.

An Infielder catching the ball with “ordinary effort”…again, this must be an infielder, not an outfielder running in, catching the ball with minimal effort.  The infielder may turn around to catch the ball, this is ok.


Not an Infield Fly:

Runner on second and third, less than two out….is NOT an Infield Fly.

Runner on first and second with two outs….NOT an Infield Fly.
