  1. I have been umpiring a long time over 20 years and never have enforced baserunners to re-tag the bases they are occupying after a foul ball. What is the actual rule on that if a runner doesn't re-tag the base after a foul ball? To me it's such a ticky-tack conversation if a Coach brings it up because you can't appeal it after a picther has thrown a pitch and I was always told to tell the runner to re-tag the base.....what is the penalty if they do not do this? Unsportsmanlike? I have never told any runner to do that or had any coach tell me a runner didn't re-tag base....im just curious.
