I'd have to go along withe the fair ball call. A fair ball is a ball that passes OVER fair territory when passing first or third base.

OK, it didn't pass first or third base but stopped short OVER fair ball territory. It doesn't have to touch fair ball territory. It doesn't say the whole ball has to be over the base on fair territory. If it breaks the plane, which this did, I've got it fair and in play.

BTW if you want to see the umpire down on all fours examining the ball on the foul line, check out the Norman Rockwell collection. He painted it. G.
