Is there is a 10' Arc in front of home plate that dictates whether a batted ball is considered playable ball? - There is a 10' Arc in front of plate, measured from tip of home plate. If the batter hits from the Tee, the ball must go beyond the arc or it is considered a foul ball. If the batter hits from a pitched ball, the same rule applies as given to the arc.
