Best Answer

If the fielder is attempting to make a play on a batted ball, and the base runner runs into the fielder, then the runner is out. If there is no play to be made on the ball, and the fielder is standing in the base line and is run into by the base runner, then it is interference on the fielder, and the runner is awarded the next base.

Why are there 2 first base lines?

Well, there aren't really. The line to the left is the first base line and the line to the right is the 'out of bounds' line. These two lines form the 'restraining box' and when a runner runs to first base they are supposed to stay within this box. If the runner runs outside of the restraining box they can be ruled out for interference should a thrown ball hit them.
