NCAA 7-8 Foul Tip
SECTION 8. A foul tip is a ball batted by the batter while standing within the lines of the batter’s box that travels directly from the bat to the catcher’s hands and is caught legally by the catcher. If trapped or not caught, it simply is a foul ball. Any foul tip that is caught is a strike, and the ball is in play. It is not a catch if it is a rebound, unless the ball first has touched the catcher’s glove or hand.
