Assuming the catcher is near home plate, the runner has to slide. If he doesn't and knocks the catcher down he is out. If the catcher is up the baseline and is waiting to make the tag the runner would be called out for crashing into him. If the slide knocks the catcher down, the outcome of the play would depend on whether the catcher maintained control of the ball during the tag and whether the runner touched home plate.
In little league baseball, the home team dugout is the 3rd base dugout.

Catcher, pitcher, outfield, and first base are the only position a lefty will play at the major league level.
Baseline in baking: once you've established a timing baseline, such as 30 minutes for cakes, you can use that baseline and know to add or subtract a little time depending on whether your cake mix turns out to be less or more. For instance, in cooking steak, if your baseline is 9 minutes, you may want to lessen the time for a thinner steak or lengthen the time for a larger steak.

yes but you can not maul over the catcher In the 1979 Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA., a player jumped over the catcher. Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores, MI was playing Campbell, CA. in a semi-final game. Grosse Pointe centerfielder Mike Walkowiak scampered home as the throw came in. The throw beat Walkowiak and the Campbell catcher crouched low to make the inevitable out. Just then, Walkowiak hurdled high over the catcher and both feet landed on home plate without even coming close to the catcher. It was the go ahead run at the time, putting Grosse Pointe up 5-4. Mike's ingenuity wasn't enough, however, as Campbell went on to win the game 8-5.
