Except the base path is established when the tag is attempted and the batter runner never ran outside it.

/Base path is not a line between individual bases.

Like the other guy said, only if there was a tag involved. Until that point there is no "baseline" established and he can run wherever he wants. However, since he wasn't in the special chalk box leading to first base the catcher could have beaned him square in the back and he would have been out automatically.

Assuming that FED and OBR is written the same way, the catcher (F2) has to at least attempt making a proper throw if he's trying to plunk the batter runner. If the throw wouldn't otherwise be catchable by the first baseman, I think it would be an easy ejection of F2. Just because the batter runner is out of the lane doesn't mean F2 gets to do whatever.

None of that matters if an attempted throw is offline because the runner is out of the established lines, which are clearly marked.

Just looked up the NCAA rule.

In running the last half of the distance from home plate to first base while the ball is being fielded to first base, the batter-runner runs outside the 3-foot restraining line or inside the foul line and, in so doing, interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base, except that the batter may go outside these lines to avoid a fielder attempting to field a batted ball;"

My reading of that is that the throw has to be a quality throw since the interference occurs against F3 and not who ever (normally F2) is throwing the ball. You can't interfere with F3 catching a ball that F3 can't catch if the BR wasn't in the way in the first place.

Emphasis added to my post.

How can the BR interfere with F3 taking a throw that is otherwise uncatchable? The offense occurs when the BR "interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base" not if the BR interferes with the fielder throwing the ball. Throwing isn't involved with the rule regardless of how much you want to make it a part of the word. "Fielding" a throw, on the other hand, explicitly is.

The runner changed how the player had to angle the ball because he was outside the running lanes every league I have played in the runner would have been called out for interfering with the attempt.

Its derek meter except without the gay attempt to knock the ball out.

Cubs300: Runner was out, btw.


I would, honestly, like to hear your explanation of why. Several people have explained why the rules say he's safe.

steamingpile: The runner changed how the player had to angle the ball because he was outside the running lanes every league I have played in the runner would have been called out for interfering with the attempt.


Again, the rules do not allow for this situation. There is no penalty for the runner being in the way of the throw. If he interferes with the catching of the ball that's one thing (he didn't), and if he'shiat by a throw while outside the baselines that's another. Neither occurred here. The catcher just farked up the throw, and I'll bet he'd tell you the same thing today. The rules of whatever leagues you've played in do not apply unless that includes NCAA baseball and you can quote the rules.

Goddamn baseball is a complicated game. Did you know there's something called a "balk," which only umpires know how to enforce?
