How do you properly appeal in baseball?

If you're talking about an appeal of a runner missing a base, or leaving a base before a fly ball is caught, the proper procedure is as follows: After play has completed, the pitcher, with the ball, steps on the pitching rubber and comes set. He then steps off the rubber legally and throws the ball to a defensive player near the base they are appealing was missed. This player then steps on the base. If the appeal is granted, the umpire will impose remedies as appropriate. If the appeal is denied, the umpire will so indicate. Note: an appeal is made while the ball is live. This means that any other runner may advance at their own risk.
