Foulf Ball Rule

Batter in ASA has a 1 ball 1 strike count. Batter fouls first pitch, count is now 1 ball 2 strike. Batter fouls next pitch, is batter out or does batter get one more pitch?

ASA rulebook does not start batters with a 1-1 count. With that in mind, I am assuming you are talking 1) slow pitch, and 2) a local rule which starts the batter with 1 1-1 count.

ASA rulebook also has a slow pitch rule where the batter is out if a foul with 2 strikes. You need to refer back to the local rules to see if there is one which grants the batter one (or more) free fouls before being out; absent that, batter is out.

Many slow pitch leagues with time limits start batters with a 1 - 1 count. Most leagues consider all fouls as strikes including the third. Some leagues do give a 'courtesy' foul which allows a free foul ball after 2 strikes.

That certainly is an option. However, if you knew Mike or me, you would know it isn't likely, or viable.
