On an offensive standpoint, I'll say if the center fielder grounds out while there is at least one base runner directly at the next bag.

On defense, if the center fielder catches the ball with their glove and runs to a base in which the base runner did not "tag up" or keep their foot on the bag while they were waiting for the ball to be caught.

If that's considered touching the ball, then I'm not sure :)
