Bases load force out
by Coach P
Okay so bases are loaded ground ball to the pitcher with first base angle. The pitcher throw to first and the first baseman after stepping on the bag throw the ball to the catcher. The catcher step on the home plate but the runner at third base and stay on the base without trying to advance. The second base runner run back to second and the first base runner didn't move at all. The umpire call the batter out but allow the other three runners to stay on bases. Should the third base runner be call out as well for the double play on the force out? I was always under the impression that it is a force out regardless of the other in which the double play is done.
