ASA safe or out


runner on 1st, ball hit to ss who races to 2nd to tag the bag, he tags the bag beating the runner but trips on the bag and falls forward hitting the ground which causes him to drop the ball from his glove

I have the runner out agree??

I have the runner out. It would be the same if the fielder was attempting a double play and while taking the ball out of the glove they dropped it, it has no effect on the force out.

Out, there is no requirement to maintain control of the ball once the base has been tagged by the defender who has possession of the ball.
