Runner on third, one out. Batter hit soft pop up near third base line. Runner immediately upon contact are four steps or so and then upon seeing pop up returns directly to base. In that time third baseman trying to catch ball, that will eventually fall in foul territory, cannot take a direct path to ball. Ball was likely catchable if she had dirct path to ball. Runner ran back to avoid being doubled off and did not intentionally interfere with fielder, just retreated back to bag directly. I ruled ball as foul. Was I correct and if not what rule number,her please, thanks.
