Replay says you are wrong.

From the official MLB rules:

Official Rules:
3.00 Game Preliminaries

Before the game begins the umpire shall:
(a) Require strict observance of all rules governing implements of play and equipment of players;
(b) Be sure that all playing lines (heavy lines on Diagrams No. 1 and No. 2) are marked with lime, chalk or other white material easily distinguishable from the ground or grass;

It was fair.

Carp speaks in such clichés it drives me up the wall.

There is no chalk to fly up.    The lines are painted!   It hit the line.
