Just looking for confirmation on a fair or foul ruling on a play I made in softball the other day.
Batter hits the ball down the first base line with a lot of spin. The ball bounces once in fair territory. I tried to get it before it went into foul territory with my glove but couldn't. So I am now standing in foul territory and before the ball hits the ground I kick it back into fair territory before it crosses first base. Since I was standing in foul territory I would have assumed it would have been foul the second it hit my foot but the umpire calls the ball fair. What is the correct call on this play?
