Assistant Coach

Hi: If a runner is on first base with less than two outs and a ball is hit to the second baseman can the runner go back to first base to avoid a tag and a double play?

Force Play
by: Dan

Hi Coach,

As the force play is on, unless the force is taken off, by tagging first base first, I am not sure how the runner can go back. Don't forget, that all that has to be done by the fielding team is to touch second base if the force play is still on. So, even if they touch first base first, the runner should be running hard to second and I do not know how she gets back.

Good luck with your season,
