A line shot (literally; 90 mph maybe) back to the mound, hits the rubber and caroms foul midway between Home and 1st. I cannot see (from my angle) whether the "screamer" touched F1 or not (either before or after striking the rubber).

This is where the reactions of players can aid you. Since the ball was a screamer (90 mph) if it did hit F1 I think you would know it.

If the players can't aid you, you can always point Fair and then undo afterwards. It's like a ball in the outfield that goes under a fence or gets stuck in shrubbery, we instruct runners to keep on running and the BU goes out and checks to make certain the ball indeed went through the fence or got stuck. You can always put runner's back.
