Force Play
by: Dan

Sorry for the delay in responding. I asked a couple umpire friends and they said that since it was a force play, the glove touching the base while the ball was in the other hand would complete the force play. It is no different than when the first baseman has her foot on the bag while catching the ball in a routine play. When the ball must be in the glove for the out is on a tag play.
