Does a runner have to tag up before advancing bases on a caught fly ball?

On a caught infield fly, runners must tag up in order to advance to the next base. This applies the same as with any catch. If the infield fly falls to fair ground untouched, or is touched and dropped, runners do not need to tag-up. However, since the batter is out, the force play on the other runners is removed.

What happens if a runner doesn’t tag up?

Do you have to tag up after every pitch?

When should you not tag up?

The very first variable that you should consider is the number of outs. If there are two outs in the inning, you should never tag up.

Can you tag up on second base?

Tagging up at 2nd Base.

The base runner really needs to decide to tag up at 2nd base, as it’s more effective than having a coach yell to the base runner to advance. Again, the base runner needs to know the game’s situation and if there is a runner on 3rd base he needs to make sure he’s tagging to home plate.

The difference between a force out and a tag up out is that the latter is not a force play. An out on a failure to tag up is not a force out. A baserunner who tags up on a flyout and is thrown out trying to advance to the next base had the option to return to the base he came from.

Can a runner go back to first after touching second?

8-2-1 An advancing runner shall touch first, second, third and then home plate in order, including awarded bases. 8-2-2 A returning runner shall retouch the bases in reverse order. If the ball is dead because of an uncaught foul, it is not necessary for a returning runner to retouch intervening bases.

Why is a fielder’s choice not a hit?

These plays occur because a defensive player chooses to get a preceding runner out on the basepaths instead of the runner going to first. Since the hitter did not reach base safely on the play, official scorers mark the play as a fielder’s choice. Therefore, the hitter does not receive a hit on the play.
