unfair baseball rules

Noah is explaining baseball to Sarah, and I'm amazed at how much she doesn't know.  She keeps coming up with different scenarios to ask Noah about. 
Sarah: Ok. Let's say you hit the ball and it goes way up in the sky.  If someone catches it, are you out?
Noah: Yes.
Sarah: Why?
Noah (looking blank):  Because...just because...that's the rules, Sarah.  If someone catches a fly ball, you're out.
Sarah: So you have no chance to score then?
Noah: No, not if you're out.
Sarah: Oh.  But what if you run really fast and you make it to first base before they catch the ball?
Noah:  You're still out.  If you hit a fly ball and it's caught, you're out.  That's it.
Sarah:  What?!  But that's so unfair!
