Re(1): Homerun Shot

(1) Some consideration has to be given as to whether the concha has an over-head screen, and if so, how high it is. The higher it is, or if no over-head screen exists (with only the fronton's ceiling over the concha), a home-run would be "easier". Then, maybe, a front court pelotari could throw the ball against the front wall so it leaves the front wall going up, and it hits the back wall going up, and then, travelling to the front wall in a high arc (with a high or no over-head screen), it starts to fall downward, but before hitting the floor, it hits the front wall. If I ever have seen that done, I don't remember it. (2) A rules question: if a pelotari throws a home run, after the pelota hits the front wall for the second time, can a pelotari on the other team catch it and play it? Or, is a home run an automatic win for that point for the team that threw the home run, with the rules not allowing the other team to play the ball after it hits the front wall for the second time? Thanks in advance for the answer.
