I didn't find a dupe on this and it's an age old topic
Why do they call it a foul pole? Fly ball, hits the foul pole and it's a home run. That doesn't make any sense to me.
So my question
Have there been any initiatives in the past or currently where they may amend the name of the foul pole to a fair pole?
If such an amendment were to begin, where would it begin with? The commissioner, the owners, the Players Union?
