What if a player climbs the wall and goes over it and then catches the ball in home run territory or foul territory, is that an out? ( I know it'll never happen but im curious...

what ia player bends over so his back is perpendicular to the ground and the ball comes to a rest on it, without having touched the ground?

that is one strange contortion. I don't understand it.

What if aliens come and land on the field and use their invisibility rays to disguise themselves and they hit the ball out of the fielders hand as he's trying to catch it and then they trip his legs and he cant get it and the runner tags up, but gets lost on his way to home and starts running the opposite way and then he runs so fast that he catches on fire and then pink elephants run on the field and pigs start flying overhead, but these arent just normal pigs, they are x-ray vision pigs with mad baseball skills and they land on the field and start hitting homeruns off the opposing pitcher who has a bionic eye and a bionic arm and throws 200 mph changeups! And then they realize that all the people on the field are actually robots being manipulated by Bud Selig for his own personal profits and gains??!!

Anyone got the official ruling on that?

well it didn't make sense, as I meant parallel. oh well. our back is usually perpendicular, so that would be even weirder.

Is this a homerun or not?


Some might consider the baserunner safe because Sheff landed on a couple of beers, though!!! ;-)

Seriously though, it's an out. Not sure about the tag-up rule though. That's a good point.
If you can help:
