As soon as the ump calls the infield fly rule, the batter is out, but the runners can still advance at their own risk. To answer your question specifically, no, the fielder can't do that - that is the exact result that the infield fly rule was enacted to prevent!

Usually when they call the infield fly rule, the baserunners go back to the bases relatively quickly, because the play is over.

recently they have allowed umpires to use relplays for awkward homeruns. there was also one time when a rule was that a catch is not a catch until the player has full control of the ball. one player caught a ball and bobbled it all the way into the infield so the runers couldn't go because it had not been declared a catch yet.

What is a double play in baseball?

It is where there is one-two runners aboard the bases (probably a runner at first base or two runners at first and second base) and a baseball player hits the ball within the infield and gets two of the runners out (depending on who was on what bases) and then there is two outs from that play!
