FORFEITED GAME
 
A FORFEITED GAME is a game declared ended by the umpire in chief in
favor of the offended team by the score of 9 to 0, for violation of the rules.

A FOUL BALL
 
A FOUL BALL is a batted ball that settles on foul territory between home
and first base, or between home and third base, or that bounds past first or
third base on or over foul territory, or that first falls on foul territory beyond
first or third base, or that, while on or over foul territory, touches the person of
an umpire or player, or any object foreign to the natural ground. 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 infielder is on foul or fair
territory at the time he touches the ball. A batted ball not touched by a
fielder, which hits the pitcher's rubber and rebounds into foul territory,
between home and first, or between home and third base is a foul ball.
