The fielder has to have the ball in his possession but if he drops it he doesn't have to tag up. Actually, the fielder doe NOT have to have possession of the ball for a base runner to tag up and advance. Once the runner is on the base ("tagging up") he may advance as soon as the fielder touches the ball, whether he has possession or not. In other words, the base runner may advance even if the fielder is bobbling the ball and then catches it, i. e. has possession.
Yes, if the fielder had full possession of the ball when he touched the base the runner is out.
As long as the ball does not touch the ground or a wall, the batter is called out.
They have to catch the ball or get the ball and touch it on one of the posts. From Smiley.
So long as the fielder has full possession of the ball the runner is considered out whether the ball is in the glove, in the bare hand, or in the glove covered with the bare hand.
The ball is live and in play. There is no penalty unless the glove touches the batted ball.
Yes, as long as the fielder has complete possession of the ball any part of their body touching the base creates a force out.
Yes, if it is a force out, as long as the fielder has the ball in his possession (glove or free hand) if he touches the bag before the runner with any part of his body then the runner would be called out. Now if this was a play that required a tag, and the ball was in his bare hand and the tag is made with the glove, or visa-versa, then the runner is safe
Yes, provided he has control of the ball at the time.
Possession is calculated from the time you touch the ball until it is touched by any other player on the field.
It all depends on how you touch them, if the goalie has possession, and if the goalie is dribbling the soccer ball.
The official rules state that a fielder need only hold a ball in his hand and touch a base. If the runner is forced to that base and the fielder touches the base while he is holding the ball, he is out. It does not say he has to step on the base. It just says he has to touch it. The runner, on the other hand, must be tagged with the hand that holds the ball.
