B. The ball goes outside the base lines.
Explanation
A foul ball is when the ball goes outside the base lines. This means that the ball is hit in a direction that is outside the designated playing area and is therefore considered out of bounds. It is important for players to keep the ball within the base lines in order for it to be considered a fair ball.

### When a fly ball is caught by a defender, the base runner has to stay on the base they started on.

• A.

True

• B.

A. True
Explanation
When a fly ball is caught by a defender, the base runner has to stay on the base they started on because if they attempt to advance to the next base, they risk being thrown out by the defensive team. This is a fundamental rule in baseball, where the base runner must wait for the ball to be caught before attempting to advance to the next base. If they leave the base too early and the ball is caught, they can be easily tagged out by the defensive team. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

This is because in baseball, a triple refers to a hit where the batter successfully reaches third base by running after hitting the ball. It is considered a significant achievement as it requires the batter to hit the ball with enough power and speed to make it all the way to third base before the fielders can retrieve the ball and tag them out.

Explanation
When a player kicks a foul ball, the defender can catch it for an out.

This rule applies whether the ball is hit fair or foul, as long as it is caught in fair territory.

A. True
Explanation
When playing a game like basketball or tennis, it is allowed to catch a ball off of the side walls.

Therefore, the statement "You can catch a ball off of the side walls" is true.

### After 3 foul balls the kicker is out.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In baseball, a foul ball occurs when the batter hits the ball outside of the field of play. After three foul balls, the kicker is considered out. This rule is in place to prevent the game from being delayed excessively by a batter repeatedly hitting foul balls without making any progress towards getting on base or scoring runs. Therefore, the statement "After 3 foul balls the kicker is out" is true.
