One Answer:Yes, The base runner is guilty of interference if he is contacted by a batted ball other than an infield fly. Another Answer:In MLB, it depends on whether or not, in the umpire's judgment, the interference was intentional or not.

Rule 7.08(b)Comment states, in part:

...If, however, the runner has contact with a legally occupied base when he hinders the fielder, he shall not be called out unless, in the umpire's judgment, such hindrance, whether it occurs on fair or foul territory, is intentional...

In most cases, no. A fielder has the ability to make a play on the ball. As long as he is in this act, there should be no interference

A base runner runs into a player with the ball is he out?

yes unless he is standing on the base It is also interference. Y-THINK-Y These answers assume we are talking about a batted ball (not clear from the question). A runner hit by a ball thrown by a fielder is not out, unless his interference with the throw was intentional. It is NOT interference if the ball first passes a fielder other than the pitcher. EXAMPLE: If the runner were to be running behind the fielder, and the ball went through the fielder's legs and hit the runner, the ball is live and there is no interference. A runner hit by a fair batted ball while standing on the base is out.

Was an accused person guilty until proven innocent in the Roman Empire?

No, an accused person was not considered guilty until the outcome of his trial or hearing. Then he was either guilty or innocent. The only time he could be guilty without a trial was when he was caught redhanded doing a misdeed and there were witnesses to it. This was generally in the nature of petty crime, or street crime. Even in the case of major crimes, such as treason, which would be tried before the senate, a person was free and told when to report to the senate for trial. A person assumed guilty would not be awarded this freedom.
