What is it called when the batter hits the ball over the fence?

Asked by Sonny Huffman

Definition. A home run occurs when a batter hits a fair ball and scores on the play without being put out or without the benefit of an error. In almost every instance of a home run, a batter hits the ball in the air over the outfield fence in fair territory.
