While watching baseball on TV, I hear the announcers occasionally mention the infield fly rule. What is the rule?

The infield fly rule says that when runners are on first and second base and there's at least one out and the batter pops up to the infield, the batter is automatically out.

The rule is meant to prevent the fielding team from deliberately flubbing the catch to pull off an easy double play.
