Lead runner has the right to the bag as long as they are not being forced ahead by occupants of other bases. If the runner on 3rd was not being forced they can return to the bag and the runner from 2nd must return to 2nd. The runner returning to second if tagged is out and unless the runner returning to 3rd is tagged while off the base then they are safe. If both runner attempt to occupy the base at the same time and fielder tags both runners while they occupy the base the runner from 2nd is out unless they are being forced ahead then the runner from 3rd is out.

The lead runner is the runner at the base closest to home plate when there is more than one runner on base.

That would be a 4-3-6-3 Double play. The defense is labeled by numbers as so: 1- Pitcher 2- Catcher 3- First base 4- Second base 5- Third Base 6- Shortstop 7- Left field 8- Center field 9- Right field The second baseman would be starting the play(4), as the shortstop covers second to cut down the runner coming from first, the second baseman makes the out at first base (3), after the out is make the first baseman tries to make the out at second, with the shortstop covering (6), but as the runner retreats to first the shortstop throws him out, making the last out at first (3). All together, 4-3-6-3. However in most cases, the second baseman's first play should be to second, but as we all know in baseball things don't always go as planed.

NO. Base runner's must run the bases in the order they batted. If a runner overtakes another runner, he is automatically out.

### Bases loaded 1 out ball is hit to firstbaseman who tags runner and throws home is it a force at home still and can runners revert?

Yes all the other bases are a force out. The runner going to first forces the runner at first to second. The runner at first forces the runner at second to third. The runner at second forces the runner at third to home. You only have to tag the runner when a runner that was "forcing" you (from a previous base) is out. In the scenario you have mentioned the only time the third baseman would have had to tag the runner from second to third would be if the initial force out was behind the runner at either at first or second (the putout thus not forcing the runner from second to third, which would now require a tag. If the initial force out was at first or second, the runner on second would have the choice of going to third or retreating to second, and not "forced" to run. Since the initial force out was at home, the runner from second to third is still being "forced" to run by the runners behind him. Make sense?
