T. When a base runner leaves his base to advance to the next base before a fly ball has been touched or touches some object, provided that if the fly ball is caught and returned to a fielder and legally held on the base left, or if a fielder touches the runner with the ball before the runner returns to retouch his original base.
EFFECT Sec. 5. S-T. These are appeal plays and the defensive team loses its right to make an appeal on any of these situations if the appeal is not made known before the next legal pitch, or illegal pitcher action, intentional walk or before all fielders have left fair territory.
1. Unless there are two outs, this status of a following runner is not affected by a preceding runner’s violation or failure to comply.
2. If, on appeal, a preceding runner is the THIRD OUT no following runner shall be allowed to score.
3. If, the appealed out is the THIRD OUT, and is the result of a force out, neither the preceding nor following runners shall score.
4. If the appealed out is the third out and is the result of the batter-runner not touching first base, preceding runners shall not score.
5. On any appealed play not a force out, all runners in advance of runner being appealed out who touch home plate legally before actual physical completion of the THIRD APPEALED OUT in any inning, shall be counted. Succeeding runners cannot score.
