Runners have a right to the basebath. If a fielder is standing in front of the bag AT ANY BASE, the runner can run him over. You just don't see other bags blocked the way home plate is.

Even standing on the bag, do you never see 2B taken out?
No, I assumed it was illegal to do that.
No it isn't, however if you overrun 2nd base you can get called out.
If you overrun 2nd base by a couple feet after destroying the 2nd baseman, you won't get called out.

I'm even just talking on slides. As long as you're still in the base path, you can hit the fielder. Technically, if the fielder was on the bag and you could run in full speed, hit him, and still stop yourself on the bag, it would be legal.

Well, it depends where the short stop is standing and whether the second baseman is left handed or not.

If MLB is to take action, then protect the liners up the middle first.  They are far more dangerous than a collision at home plate.

I say you modify the original rule, if you throw the ball from the outfield and hit the runner he is out.  Cut off man still must throw to the plate and the catcher has to tag.the runner.

Sure.  It's also not dangerous to have certain ballparks to be 325 down the line as compared to 345.
So a player accustomed to 345 might not have trouble when there's 20 ft less field?

Speaking of Cresty...where in the hell has he been?

I don't know.  I know he has been making moves in the FF league that we are in.

I was looking for that yesterday.    But that was about midway between 1st/2nd.    He sent a forearm that would make a linebacker proud.
