Situation: There is a baserunner at 1st base. A line drive is kicked by the kicking player. The baserunner on first starts running to 2nd base, then sees the shortstop make a diving catch of the ball, they then run back and touch 1st base and start running to 2nd as the pitcher receives a throw from the shortstop. The base runner then stops and goes back to 1st base. The pitcher then throws the ball to 1st in order to try and get the runner out before they reach 1st base safely. Can the defense get a Force Out at 1st base?
Yes, since the runner is going back to 1st base.
Yes, since the kick was a caught out.
No, the runner must be tagged because the pitcher gave up control of the ball with their throw, thus allowing the player to go toward 1st or 2nd, no force.
No, because the baserunner tagged up at the wrong point in the play.
Player E is up to kick with a runner on third, no outs, and no fouls. When they kick their plant foot crosses the front of home plate, and the ref yells "Foul!". The ball is caught in the outfield, and after properly tagging up the runner on third makes it safely home. What should happen?
Player E must kick again (do-over) and the runner must return to third.
Player E is out, and the run counts.
Player E is out, and the runner must return to third.
Player D shows up at 5:20 for their teams 5:00 game, which is now in the fourth inning. The team is already using all 12 kicking spots. Are they allowed to be added to the lineup?
No. You can not add late players to the lineup.
Yes. They may share a spot, so long as the rest of the lineup remains legal.
No. If they were only using 11 spots they could be added to the bottom, but as it is the lineup is full.
When runners tag and overrun 1st base, they are allowed to return to 1st base safely....
As long as they do not turn to the left.
As long as they remain in foul territory.
As long as they do not intentionally move or fake toward 2nd base in fair or foul territory.
As long as they come back to the 1st base in a reasonable amount of time.
A Ground Rule Double is when...
A kicked ball lands in fair territory and bounces over the back outfield fence.
A kicked ball becomes unplayable in any landscape in fair territory or when a thrown ball leaves the fenced in field of play.
A kicked or thrown ball lands outside of a fenced in field.

Situation: There are zero outs, there is a runner on 1st, and a runner on 3rd. A ball is kicked into the air and bounces off a outfielder. The runner on 1st then leaves leaves 1st base toward 2nd. The outfielder then catches the ball without it ever touching the ground. Then the runner on 3rd base leaves 3rd toward home. The ball is thrown to and controlled by the pitcher before either runner reaches their next base. The pitcher immediately takes the ball to tag 1st base. The runner that was at 1st before the play is now stopped on 2nd base, and the runner that was on 3rd base has crossed the home place. So, how many outs are there after the play ends?
