Pitch in the dirt

Recommended Posts

(This may be archived, but I can't find it.) 

Sit: Either 2 out or less than 2 out w/1B open.  B has 2 strikes.  Pitch bounces in before crossing the plate (typical in my games).  B swings at the pitch in the dirt for strike 3 (also typical in my games) and tips the ball directly to F2 who securely gloves the batted ball (not often in my games).    

Q1: Is this a foul tip?  I'm going with yes (NFHS 2-6-1, 2-16-2).

Q2: If  not, why?

Yes. The only things a pitch in the dirt cannot be (that any other pitch can be) is a called strike and legally caught.
