Read the guys profile. He just does fast pitch.  His answer is spot on for fast pitch

"ASA states that it is an out no matter what strike it, slow pitch"

A "foul tip" in SP is rare but the statement is NOT correct.  In SP a foul tip w/less than 2 strikes is simply a strike the same as FP.  With 2 strikes any batted foul, tip or ball is an out in SP. I challenge the OP to cite the rule in this add to the answer that in SP  says a foul tip is an out w/ less than 2 strikes. It's unfortunate the OP doesn't know the rules and rate the "K" at a 1.  

The OP doesn't understand the difference between a "foul tip" and a "foul batted ball" which can be caught by the catcher for an out on any count.  Since you state "ASA says" I assume you have a rule book, please read RS 22 to understand the difference.  Please also read 7-4-e Strike, foul tip.

You can see why I don't do slow pitch.  I don't know slow pitch.  Thanks Mark
