    Infield Fly

    The act of a fielder intentionally dropping a fly ball or line drive, AFTER MAKING A CATCH, can occur at any time.

    Infield Fly

    OBR A declared infield fly is caught, then intentionally dropped to the ground.

    Runs Scoring

    PLAY: Loaded bases, 2 out. On a base-hit to the outfield, the runners from second and third score. The runner from first misses second and when he is almost to third base the coach yells to him to go back and touch second. As he is returning to second, the batter-runner is tagged out between 1st and 2nd (for the third out), JUST BEFORE the runner is able to get back to second base. Playing under OBR, can the defense appeal the runner missing second and if so, what happens?
