You must have hit the return button a lot.

But, if the batter could attempt 1B, one signal would be a point with the slot arm  and a "yes he did" verbal if the PU had an attempt but since you said appeal that didn't happen. The BU would not have a signal in that case and everyone would know what to. So in your case the signal would be an immediate "did he go" with his left arm (MLB umps might use a different arm but they will know what they are doing) pointing to the correct line ump if the PU did not have an attempt from his view.  The BU would then signal yes or no and everyone would know what to do. Sometimes the PU is slow or unsure and at competent levels the BU will give a "yes he did", almost right away if he had an attempt and everyone will know what to do. The actual signals are a left arm point (MLB excluded) by the PU and a safe or out signal by the PU accompanied by verbals if needed.

What happened in your sit

With two strikes the batter checked(?) his swing on a pitch that bounced just before being caught.PU pointed to U1 in "A" and asked Did he go?. U1 immediately answered yes and signalled strike with his right arm.  Is the next move by PU a safe signal?

Signal "strike" and then "no catch".  Verbalize both.  Followed almost imediately by an out. ;)

 

And, if in the interim F2 has tagged the BR, you can just skip to an out.
