    No need to chase the runner back to 1st base, either throw to 2nd for the force, or to 1st for the batter/runner but then any play on the advancing runner to 2nd would become a tag play once the b/r is put out.

    But since the b/r was not put out in this case, why was the runner then safe at 2nd? Did the umpires just mess this one up?

    I can't tell from the video if f6 had her foot on the base or not when she caught the throw. It appears her foot may have been on the first base side and not touching. Umpire may have screwed up, he may not have. I would expect a better video of it is going to be posted somewhere.

    I stopped the video right when F6 caught the ball and there is a lot of glare on the TV screen but it looks like her right foot is well off the base.

    Smart base running. She was trying to not run into a tag and an easier double play. She was originally trying to force f 4 into a throw.

    I had the game on DVR and watched it a few times on the 'big screen'. It is clear Baylor never made the force at 2 on any of the throws.

    Very good call.

    Play looks like the defense all suffered a simultaneous brain fart.

    This is both savvy base-running and terrible defense.

    What play should the defense made?

    Should 2nd just thrown it to 2nd for force out?
