tagging up means to stay on the base when it is a fly ball so if it is caught you don't get out by not being on the base if it is thrown to the base you were just on. This is also used so if a ball is or is caught after you sprint really really fast and probably slide (except if your the batter as you run any way) ad opefully don't get out. (trust me i play softball) hope this answers you question!
